E-mail From:Cynthia N.-Laguna Niguel CA (near Laguna Beach CA):
I witnessed a HUGE white fire ball from the south sky toward north @ a down ward angle. At first I thought it was a large airline plane afire,however,our near by John Wayne Airport here in Orange County CA has their flight pattern from the west sky toward the east.This HUGE ball of white fire was angled @ an approx 20 degree downward angle.Before it "went out" I saw a large particle fall behind it then the entire HUGE fire ball went out.It looked approx a 20th size of a full moon.What was this? likely a fragmenting meteor called a "bolide". Thanks for your report!
