I work at the Faurecia plant in Spartanburg SC pretty far north close to some of the sighting areas...I saw something tonight about 4 am matching the description except I saw an impact & white flash no more than 10mi from me. I find this extremely peculiar as its been a number of sightings over the last 2-3 days in this area most if not all moving from N to S mine was the same making impact at about 310 deg SW of my plant. If you want specifics u can look up the Faurecia plant address we are a BMW supplier and pretty well known in the area. Reply if you'd like detailed specifics on impact location.
