Shape: Fireball
Duration:15 minutes
There was an object fireball/light

Thick over cast, lightly raining,low wind and well lit over city...

Came down thru clouds and held (hovering or motionless) altidude just under cloud base 10 mins.

Brite yellow orange color light/fireball. slow movments north bound. I live near a level 1 trauma center (hospital) that has many life flight helicopters comming and going thru out nights. One came in 5 mins after event giving a better judgement of light color and altitude. It was far too big to be any aircraft I've ever seen and had a feather like movment. It drifted out of sight going north several miles and back into clouds..
