Location: East Northport, NY
Shape: Fireball
Duration:8 SECONDS
Ball followed by Stream of orange light.

Ball followed by Stream of orange light, much larger than the background sky star field. Large orange mass followed by a trailer line of orange light similar to sky writing). Seemed to be so close that I waited to hear an explosion. It was silent and that is confusing to me since it appeared to be closer than any aircraft I had ever seen?
