6 Fireballs spotted in California!

6 Fireballs spotted in California!

(for those who haven’t tried, the option to add a photo shows up as a little toolbar at the bottom of the post, but only if you happen to (accidentally, in my case) move your cursor to the bottom of your screen.) and, I may have accidentally set my photo as the...
