1) Pennsylvania

Stan Gordon reports that on October 10, 2001, I received reports that fireball sightings were reported from Warren County, PA near the New York line at 9:00 PM.  One witness I interviewed, said that she saw a huge blazing orange ball of fire moving north.  During the evening I learned that other similar reports originated from Armstrong and Mercer Counties.  I was also told that emergency centers near Youngstown, Ohio received many sighting reports.  A resident of Allegheny County, near Pittsburgh, had knowledge that police in that area also received reports of something moving across the sky. I also interviewed a witness from Latrobe, PA in Westmoreland County, who watched a big orange-red ball of fire "as bright as the moon" followed by a glowing tail which tapered off in thickness. I am awaiting additional data concerning this event.  Thanks to Stan Gordon-Researcher PA UFO/ 724-838-7768  paufo@westol.com.

2) Michigan

HOWELL -- At 7:39 PM Tuesday, October 2, I was driving east on Clyde Road four miles north of Howell, when overhead I noticed a bright white fireball trailing a line of blue and white sparks.  The fireball descended at a rapid pace moving east.  Its diameter was about the size of a pea held at arm's length.  It was much larger and brighter than what is seen during a meteor shower (i.e., falling stars).  As I said, I first noticed it through the top left of my windshield as it shot downward at what I guessed to be a 60-degree angle.  It descended below the horizon.  I thought it might hit maybe 10 miles east.  Thanks to NUFORC www.ufocenter.com .com
