White fireball with comet-like head and thin white tail. As bright as Venus, No fragmentation. Fireball was about the same or a little larger than the planet Venus. Venus and Jupiter were nearly due west at that time. The fireball was about half as high in the sky as they were.

13MAR2012 Gretchen Hollingsworth Winder, GA USA 20:30 Hours Eastern Time 10 seconds approximately-I yelled for my husband to come look, and by the time he made it in the room it was out of sight. NE-W I was inside, so I didn't hear any sound. I just saw what appeared to be a giant fireball moving across the sky, as if it was something on fire. It was insanely bright, white edged with pale yellow/orange. It was as bright as the sun. I didn't notice any fragments. I could draw it, but it would just look like a ball of fire.
