Location: San Bernadino, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 3 secs
Characteristics: The object left a trail
While driving north on Interstate 15, 16 miles south of Hesperia, California my wife and I witnessed a green streak 40 degrees above the horizon traveling east at a very high rate of speed. As the object continue to descend at a angle of about 135 degrees it grew brighter and brighter( about the size of a pencil eraser held at arms length) until it just flared out before it went behind the mountains. We, my wife and I both pyschologically prepared ourselves to what we expected to be a loud explosion as it disappeared in the mountain range to the east of the interstate, but there was no impact. The interstate was pretty busy and no one could have missed this display. Funny it hasn't been previously reported. Most classic display of what we think was a meteorite entering the atmosphere.

((NUFORC Note: We agree with the witness's observation that there are no other reports in our database for this apparently dramatic aerial event. We would welcome other reports from individuals who might have observed this event. PD))
