The Pitts fireball, which appeared on a cloudless morning, was
visible over an area of several thousand square miles and left a dense smoke
train in its wake, lingering as a zigzag trale for several minutes and
assuming various shapes. A thunder-like sound was heard by some, and others
in nearby Cordele reported two spectacular explosions. In Pitts, the
detonations caused the earth to tremble. Four individials were recovered
from a strewnfield measuring less than a mile in length.
