Location: Iroquois Falls, Ontario, Canada.
I think I saw the eastern projectile portion of this fireball.
Getting up for work, Fri. Jan. 28. 4:00am.
My living room lit up, looked out window, saw fire ball falling slowly out of the sky until it fizzled out. I've never seen anything like this in my life! Totally blew me away. Wow!!!
