    I heard it as it went by, was making a strange sound. Like air hitting it, must not have been perfectly round? I didn't hear it hit because my dog was going crazy and couldn't hear once it got past me. It lit up the whole forest. I could see it right at ground level about fifty yards past me.

    lol, it could be the twilight zone. It could have been blue ice, whatever that is? Sorry I would have responded earlier, still figuring this site out.

    Possibly ball lightning.

    Figure the Earth is moving around the sun at 67,000 miles per hour; so even a piece of a meteor sitting still in space when we get there comes in at 67,000 mph. That's FAST. That's why they only last a second even when skimming the upper atmosphere. They are actually slowing down some when they hit the lower atmosphere.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Hi, just figuring out how to use this site. Would have responded sooner. I just about did wet my pants. At first I thought it was going to hit me, lol. It came flying past me about thirty yards to my right and probably twenty feet above me. Someone on here mentioned the sonic wave would have hit me? I had my house in front of me? was on my back porch. I really don't know what it was, made the strangest noise. Good sized fire ball, lit up all of the forest behind my house. I guess it might have been a piece of aircraft, but the size of it you would think would have brought the plane down.

    Had a building between me and the what ever it was? It was making a strange noise, lit up the whole forest. Below tree top level it was still basketball size?

    That's pretty funny. This was below tree top level when it went by. I seriously doubt it's in the next state.

    I suggest beginning your search while all of the evidence is still fresh. When you find it share some pictures with us please. Good luck!

    sounds like ball lightening more than a meteorite. That thing would have blown out your windows of your house if it was really that close.

    True. 30 yds over & 20 ft above (if basketball sized, estimate 100+ lbs of iron?) would've had the destructive power of over 1000 lbs of TNT, and made a horrendous mess of everything within a football field in any direction, at the very least. Should be easy to pinpoint
