Duration:3 SECONDS
SOMETIME BETWEEN 11:15-11:30 SUNDAY NIGHT I OBSERVED A HUGE OBJECT IN THE SOUTHERN SKY WHICH WAS BLUE AT FIRST & RAPIDLY TURNED TO ORANGE FLAMES. I SAW THIS OBJECT FOR APPROX. 2-3 SECONDS AFTER WHICH SOME TREES BLOCKED MY VIEW. JTHE OBJECT APPEARED TO BE CLOSE ENOUGH THAT I SAT WAITING FOR A SHOCK WAVE. AT ITS WIDEST IT APPEARED TO BE ABOUT 3/4 THE DIAMETER OF A FULL MOON AND TRAVELED STRAIGHT TOWARD THE GROUND ON WHAT SEEMED LIKE A VERTICAL COURSE.
