Location: Akron, OH
Shape: Fireball
Duration:90 seconds
Looking at sky before entering work building. Observed orange fireball. Object was observed while standing in parking lot. Clear sky, no clouds.

Observed, one orange fireball, with a white outer glow, travelling East to West over Akron. Accompanying this round fireball, was a long white tail that was emitting sparks, like a fourth of July sparkler, and dropping dark unknown debris. It was observed to be at a very low altitude. I observed this object for approximately one and one half minutes, before it just disappeared before my eyes. It left no trace of it's presence behind. I am quite sure of the date, as my son's birthday was to be the next day, November 12th. I am also sure of the time as I am scheduled to work at 8:oo P.M. I looked at my watch, just prior to spotting the object.
