Video: Mysterious Fireball Explosion Spotted in Iowa Has Left Authorities With No Answers

Residents in Council Bluffs, Iowa, were startled by a sudden and unexplained explosion on December 22nd, leaving local authorities puzzled. Video footage captured by WOWT 6 News depicts a fiery blast illuminating the night sky.

Describing the event, a resident named Roz shared with WOWT, “All of a sudden, I heard this explosion and this concussion… It rattled the house.”



Residents in northeast Council Bluffs said they heard a large explosion two nights ago.

Roz, who said he didn’t want to be identified for his personal safety, said footage he gave to 6 News captures the blast around 5:20 p.m. Wednesday.

“All the sudden, I heard this explosion and this concussion,” he said. “It rattled the house.” Taking a closer look at the footage, you can see what appears to be a reflection of a fireball in a vehicle’s windshield.

Roz wasn’t the only one who told 6 News they witnessed it. Sixteen-year-old Graysen Newton said he was driving home when he saw a fireball around 15 to 20 feet above him. He said it was around the size of a basketball.
