I have received a few reports about a bright fireball seen across California. Sightings have been sent in from San Francisco to San Diego. There is some disagreement on the time with some people saying it occurred on January 18 around 5:40 pm PST and others saying it happened on January 19 around 4 am PST. So perhaps we are talking about 2 unrelated but spectacular fireballs, the evening one was seen over southern California while the morning one was a northern CA object.
Neither of these fireballs are related to the one seen over northern Europe a few days ago.
Based on the number of hits I’ve been getting the last 2 days and the number of people of people who found this blog by searching for info about a California fireball, this must have been seen by many folks. Please post what you saw in the comments section. Thanks.
