      The bug

      If a fireball is shot with bow and arrow, it will not rebounce in the direction it gets hit but rather the direction the player is facing.

      How to reproduce

      1. Summon a fireball
        /summon fireball ~ ~1 ~ {direction:[0.0,0.0,0.0],ExplosionPower:0}
      2. Stand fair way away from it (~15 blocks)
      3. Shoot an arrow at it, then, before the arrow hits the fireball, quickly look in another direction
        The fireball will fly in the direction you looked rather than the one you shot the arrow
