The fireball had a bright white tail to it as bright as the fireball . I'm a lorry driver who works nights , and I have seen them in the past but this one was so close as to the size of it . I was driving in my car on my way home from work with the radio on so I didn't hear the sonic boom etc . My only regret is I should of stopped and had a look to see if I could see anything glowing as it must of hit the ground so close to me . It was dark at that time of the morning .
