LARGE FIREBALL FALLING FROM SKY

I WAS BY MYSELF AND 3 OF MY FRIENDS WERE 2 STREETS OVER FROM ME. I WATCHED AS THE FULLY INFLATED REGULAR PARTY BALLOON SIZED FIREBALL OBJECT DESCENDED FROM THE SKY. THE OBJECT SEEMED TO MOVE AT A WELL PACED SPEED, LIKE THAT OF AN AIRPLANE FLYING OVERHEAD TO ARRIVE AT LAX AIRPORT. IT DISAPPEARED FROM MY LINE OF SIGHT AFTER I WAS WATCHING IT FOR 6 MINUTES.

MY 3 FRIENDS WERE WATCHING THE SAME OBJECT DESCEND FROM THE SKY AND SAW IT GET CAUGHT IN A VERY LARGE PALM TREE (100 FT. TALL OR MORE). THEY WATCHED THE OBJECT AS THE OBJECT WAS CLEARLY ON FIRE BUT THE PALM TREE DID NOT IGNITE. THE OBJECT CONTINUED TO BURN FOR APROXIMATELY 10 MINUTES. THEN THE OBJECT JUST WENT OUT.

WE ALL WENT TO LOOK FOR IT THE NEXT DAY BUT FOUND NOTHING.
