|White luminous basketball-sized falling fireball.
While four persons standing, dark, clear night, mountain/wilderness area, two saw same whitish/orange tinted object/fireball/orb slightly above trees on nearest mountain (5,000 ft approx. distance from observers) falling at an angle downwards, then was gone, burned out, or behind terrain. Only two of the four people actually saw this because it was only 1 or 2 seconds in duration.
