Quotes

Heimann will be there. "I will go when the tower stands for the inauguration," he says, "I hope to go to the top of the tower and have a view of the surroundings."
Another witness in Cherry Hill reported, "It was really bright initially. Red, then orange, then, I swear there was blue as that faded out. Then, it was gone. It looked so close, and you could see a light surrounding it, wrapping upward as it shot straight down."
Sullivan said he's not sure yet if he'll make the trip. "I’ll check with the missus. I’m not great with heights or flying! I might have to pluck up some serious courage, but it is a once in a lifetime experience, so I’m going to have to do it."
" It was large and bright enough from my perspective to mistake it for fireworks, but it was going downward" a witness in Westminster reported
