Awesome daytime fireball: http://www.amsmeteors.org/2014/05/da...sa-may-4-2014/
Years ago I saw one that was not nearly so bright, but I had excellent criteria. I knew where I was standing, within a few feet; was looking through a series of windows that confined the viewing angle to ~10 degrees. I reported it to one of the groups that was documenting them at the time.
