Fireball over South Orange?

I'm in my backyard. We live up the hill between Ridgewood and Wyoming close to the border with West Orange.

In the clouds I saw what looked like a fireball going south east. From where I stood it looked like it was over Floods Hill. It was on a slightly downward trajectory then went out.

Someone playing with fireworks?

Meteor flaming out?

Very weird. No sound that I could make out.

 I believe it landed just outside Smallville on a farm.

 Maybe. Looked pretty low and it looked like it was in or behind a cloud.

I know I saw something.

It took me a while to realize I needed to say it out loud to get it...

 A reference to how Superman arrived on earth from Krypton. 

Sigh. I was hoping maybe someone else caught a glimpse. Maybe swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus. Keep watching the skies.


Could it have been the sunlight glinting on your tinfoil hat?    cheese
