Observer
NameMichael G
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThe two stars in the image, taken about midway through the fireball, are Tania Australis and Tania Borealis. It is of course a risky thing to submit a fireball report on July 4 of all nights, but it did not exhibit the behavior of any firework I have ever seen, nor were there any other visible fireworks in the sky during the fireball or in the 25 minutes before or afterward.
