Steph E-mails...Hey there! So I just posted a comment on your blog...I saw a fireball on the evening of Feb. 10th 6:00 pm EST. I live in Columbus, OH and it was southeast to east. It was one of 4 that had dropped...there were 2 smoke trails from the first two (totally different trajectories but all going the same direction) and I caught the end of the third one. They were really big...very slow...and totally cool!
