Object Looked Like Flickering Ball Of Flames Over Asheville North Carolina
On November 19, 2010 I was driving westbound on Smokey Park Highway in west Asheville, NC and stopped at light turning left (south) on 151 (Pisgah Highway) when I noticed a dual jet trail (It looked like a high altitude jet trail) streaming through the sky heading for what looked like a crash.
It continued in it’s downward motion headed in a SW motion and seemingly straight down.
I thought there was going to be a crash in the forest near my house. When I first noticed it at 5:00pm there were 2 other planes that flew nearby it from two directions. I watched it for 6-9 minutes driving S on 151 until it dipped behind a mountain looking like a flickering ball of flames (no trail at this point).
I called the police and fire departments and there were no other reports and the only other report I found was from someone in Texas that witnessed it 30 minutes after me. Maybe an hour and half (time change, not sure on that)
I was told it was a meteorite, maybe. I'm not sure. I used to live on the Space coast in FL and it reminded me more of a shuttle. I don't know what I witnessed.
I would have totally believed it was a meteorite if it weren't for the two trails 'tails' behind it. What do you think?
