i got at the back yard to smoke and when i sat at the chair i look the sky and i saw a fireball with very bright red begining of the tail falling with speed. disappeared behind the roof....i went to the front yard to check and it was gone.((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS))in addition to my prior report i would like to add something.the time i saw the fireball on the sky suddenly i heard the sound of high frequency electricity ...like zzzzzz.i cant describe it better cause its a sound.and when the fireball dissapeared the sound stopped.i ve been asked the direction of the subject and it was north.((END ADDENDUM))((NUFORC Note: The witness describes a very peculiar phenomenon, which is not at all well understood by astronomers. The object described may have been a meteor, in which case, a person on the ground should not have been able to hear it, given its presumed altitude, and given that it was almost certainly traveling at hyper-sonic velocity. Witnesses on the ground, if they hear a meteor at all, sound hear a sonic boom, like a clap of thunder, but they should not hear a "zzzzzz" sound. Please see a similar report from Roswell, NM, for an earlier date. PD))((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information. PD))
