Bizarre In The News - Mysterious fireball


A mysterious fireball that lit up the sky over Atlanta has left onlookers bewildered as to what it could have been.
Charsign Raymond, 39, of Clarkston, was visiting a friend's home in Stone Mountain when his friend's wife saw the unidentified object streak across the sky.
'She ran in and said, "Look, you've all got to see this"', Mr Raymond recalled.

Mr Raymond managed to capture the double-barrelled ball of fire falling towards the ground on his camera.
DeKalb County Police Department said they had no reports of fireballs hitting the county recently and have offered no explanations as to what it could be.
A neighbour who also witnessed the unexplained sighting said she thought it was a meteor about 10 times larger than any she'd ever seen before.
A second streak zoomed across the sky just seconds later.
