Location: Hillview/Shepherdsville, KY
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: The object emitted other objects
Fireball dripping Balls of Fire

we were in the Hillview neighborhood off of Preston Highway, when we observed a fireball in the sky that seemed to explode, and another fireball shot off in a westerly direction, and then faded off and the main fireball continued on a southerly path, hovering over southern Preston Highway, heading towards Shepherdsville.

It was just below the clouds, moving at the speed of a small plane and it seemed to drip Balls of Fire towards the ground sometimes several smaller balls of fire at a time and it continued on for a distance and then more balls of fire would seem to drip off of it, this happened four five times before finally disappeared into the clouds as it continued South towards Shepherdsville, Kentucky. Can't seem to explain it.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and he seemed to us to be quite sober-minded, and sincere about his report. We strongly suspect that he is a good, and reliable, witness. PD))
