Fireball Point of origin

Sage Advice: Fireball is described in Player’s Handbook p.241 or Player’s Basic Rules p.90
The Question reminds me that previous editions specify: A streak flashes from the pointing digit and, unless it impacts upon an obstacle prior to attaining the prescribed range. An early impact results in Fireball.

      Rules says that if you are Blind, so you can’t see the target (PHB p. 290), you have disadvantage on attack rolls but you need to know WHERE the target could be. So player need to declare where will shoot and roll with disadvantage.

      I would allow a Perception check with DC 25 and let a disadvantage attack but it’s just a personal house rule.
