Email From:
Vallerie B.- Orange County, CA ~8:00 P.M. PDT:
it looked irregularily shaped, like the head of an angled broom on fire coming down it seemed as it went north east or so
Vallerie B     thank you Vallerie!  More reports needed for confirmation...Other Witnesses?

Unknown Reporter-Downey, CA:
Hi, about 7:35 p.m. Downey ca, looked up saw a fire streak larger head with long tail, shoot across sky, north. Seemed to disintigrate, after 5 seconds. Very clear view, almost looked like a firework.     thanks!...whoever you are

Daniel C.-Upland, CA:
I saw a brilliant fireball last night around 8 PM in Upland. I was walking due east and the fireball arced downward from right to left about half way above the horizon at about 10 o'clock to my reckoning. It had a fiery head - I thought I saw flames - and a long tail. A passenger plane cruising northeast at about 30k feet passed by at the same time in the same quadrant of the sky. Beautiful sight.     thank you Daniel! I'm sure it was

Case F.-Norwalk, CA:
hello there, while walking my dogs somewhere in between 7-8pm, i caught the last couple seconds of a trail of fire in the sky. i was heading east and turned north when i saw the tail flicker out. the trail was shooting towards the north. it sounds like i had about the same view as daniel in upland :)  i thought it was fireworks until i noticed that the trail had a arc to it and it was moving too quickly. my first fireball/shooting star/meteor (?) sighting in california!
thanks for the website as i stumbled upon it looking for info on just what exactly i saw in the sky last night!     please bookmark my site, and thank you Case!
