Don in Willits, CA stated: "Orange, Yellow gold exact color of fire."
Andrew in New Orleans, LA stated: "This sighting was seen by myself and the neighbors as they were leaving the house. I frequently see planes out the window, and at first I thought this was plane lights, but the persistence and color made me go outside to look with binoculars. When I retrieved the binoculars from the cabinet by the front door, the object was much smaller and somewhat obstructed by the trees in the distance. Reddish orange, flickering, with dark core."
Andrew S. in Johnstown, PA stated: "Looked like falling debris. Orange."

T.F. in Maumelle, AR stated: "1st spotted on my right/North at exit #142/I-40. Followed 365 to where pinned on map. Lost view to trees there. It came from NE, heading toward Palarm Creek area/Ar. river. It was Huge. Unmissable. At 1st site, a jet was coming from South & looked straight on it. A bright light (helicopter?) was coming from same direction as fireball when returned to exit 142. I had followed 365 till lost sight. I pinned location of last sighting, not first. Tried to take photo but hit wrong button. No pics. Sad. It was very cool. It was very big. Wow! :) White, Yellow, Orange (?) .. flaming ball ... ball with a mane."
David in Marion, IA stated: "Like a Sparkler Salute. Little bits flying off tail tangent to path."
K.R. in Philadelphia, PA stated: "Glowing trail then got brighter before fading."

Matthew in Vista, CA stated: "It was awesome! I've only seen a few meteors in my life. Super cool, and it was so bright and fast!"
Hans in Valley Center, CA stated: "Small flash came mid flight, core of meteor continued on. Light green with red and blue trail."
Kandy in Lake Havasu City, AZ stated: "The fireball was bright red with a tail. It was falling slowly and straight down. Looked like it could have fallen into the lake (Lake Havasu)."
Charles of Montara, CA, stated: "I have some photos of the incident. I just wanted to know what it was, if anything. Thank you for your time."
Daniel in Lawrence, KS stated: "I look at the sky frequently because I believe that there is many unanswered questions of great importance. This is the first time I felt like I needed to report such an incident. This sighting was the most clear one I have ever seen without expecting to watch a reported meteor shower. Small off shoots from the object. Meaning I saw smaller fragments of the same color/heat as the main object behind the falling main object. As if the object were breaking up as it came closer to the earth."
Kevin in Williamsburg, IA stated: "I was driving west. I looked up through car window and saw the a large bright white line descending Fairly low. As it moved closer to the ground It just went out. I think it probably hit the ground a few miles ahead. It was no higher than a small plane would be and much larger."

Delicia in St. Charles, MD stated: "Big, firey and puffy."
Stojan in Subotica, Serbia stated: "Explosions happened 2 times.. just when it start to fade (30% of path traveled) it exploded and regain brightness ... also 2nd time (at aprox 60%) I was watching this trough thick cloud... I believe it would be brighter without them.. and without some blur. There were at least 2 explosions."
Theresa in Sanford, NC stated: "Silver, orange, and red."
Jane in Walterboro, SC stated: "I am not sure about the exact location or time. It was in the vicinity of Walterboro, South Carolina, USA. I was traveling north on Interstate 95 in that vicinity about 10:30 or 11 a.m. EST on Jan. 20 when I saw the fireball in the sky. The fireball moved from east to west, traveling downward toward the east. It was very bright and colorful and had a had a tail. Both the fireball and tail seemed to disappear at the same time. Green, orange, yellow."
S.B. in Mint Hill, NC stated: "Very odd that I saw this in the morning of a sunny day. Seemed like the size of a softball but it was shooting across the highway in front of me. Blue, Green, Red, White."
John in Cypress, CA stated: "The moon was bright but behind me. Yet the fireball was very visible and bright. Surprised me that it was so bright at dawn and with the moonlight."
So, if we're in peril shouldn't a meteorite have actually struck the Earth by now?

Adrienne in Carpinteria, CA stated: "The meteor appeared to fall vertically in the down direction; from its size, which appeared large, I would say it fell quite near, less than 200 meters away. I was driving southbound on 101, leaving Carpinteria, just before the road bends west around the cliffs to Rincon. It disappeared before I could guess its point of impact. Green."
Griffin in Harleysville, SC stated: "I was riding home (to DC) on a motorcycle and saw it out of the corner of my eye. It was morning (around 10am) and the sun was blinding in my mirrors. The ball was as bright/brighter. Really cool to see! One bright orange/reddish ball exploded into two (one about 70% of original size)."
Gleason in Charleston, SC stated: "This is the first meteor I have seen in daylight! I am interested to know if anyone else saw it. Orange burst of fire. It seemed to flash in multiple directions."
Isobel in Seattle, WA stated: "Decent, appeared very steep."
Jackson in Arlington, WA stated: "A bright light that fell directly from the sky FAST near the Arlington airport. Did not appear to be a traditional landing of any kind but did appear more as a light than a fireball. Not sure if it was a fireball or an aircraft (which is likely due to proximity to the airport), but was a bright and sudden drop from the sky."
Michael in Redmond, WA stated: "Have not seen a meteor this large in awhile."
