Location of Sighting: West of Stratford Ontario.
Number of witnesses: 3
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Fireball.

Full Description of event/sighting: Just after dark I was sitting facing the west in my backyard, when through the trees I spotted a fiery ball approximately parallel to the line of my back neighbours roof. My view to the west is through backyards and trees, no buildings in the way. I pointed it out to 2 friends sitting with me and they both saw it. It looked like a flaming ball with dark smoke streams behind it. It traveled from the south towards the north west. My view was obscured sometimes, but I could see its path through a young willow tree by my back fence. Then I lost sight of it as it went farther north and the building blocked my view. Sadly my husband just missed it, because he is an amateur astronomer.

I have been watching my local newspaper but nothing was reported by anyone else.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
