While looking at the stars on a clear night, I saw an object, yellow/orange, travel from North to South (nearly 0 to 180 degrees almost exactly). The fireball then went out but the disc (from underneath, obviously) kept moving across the sky then disappeared in the South.

While looking at the stars on a clear night, I saw an object, yellow/orange, travel from North to South (nearly 0 to 180 degrees almost exactly). The obect left a streak and made a hissing sound overhead, I could not reliably judge the altitude, but it was over a few hundred feet. The fireball then went out but the disc (from underneath, obviously) kept moving across the sky then disappeared in the South. From the ground, it was dime-sized. The tail was drinking straw sized. Aircraft in the area were just your typical high altitude west to east flights at that time of night.
