Observer
NameMaggie C
Experience Level3/5
RemarksPhysics teacher. My sister and I both saw it. We were laying on our backs, side by side, in a hammock behind a vacation house called Pinecroft Cottage just outside of Berea, Kentucky. The fireball zoomed directly over us nearly perfectly in line with the direction we were laying in from our heads toward our feet. We were laying parallel to the back of the cottage, which would put the path of the meteor roughly due southwest. The trail was at least 30 degrees long, bright yellow. We cannot be sure if there was a sound associated with the event because it is the eve of July 4th, so the hills out here were already ringing with the sounds of fireworks. The time of observance is approximate, though about a minute or two after we saw it I had the wherewithal to ask the time and it was then 11:07.
