A Dillon resident saw a huge fireball in the sky, just before 8 a.m Tuesday. Ruth Jackson of Dillon spoke to NBC Montana over the phone and says she had no idea what she was looking at, so she pulled over to take a photo.
“We were driving east on Helena St. in Dillon and the sun hadn’t come up yet but there was this bright thing in the sky and I said to my husband, ‘What is that?'” said Jackson.
She was a passenger in the car along with her husband and two granddaughters. They were on their way to drop the girls off at school when they stopped to take the picture.
“I am always looking for something to take a picture of, but this was just awesome,” said Jackson.
