Location: Prescott Valley, AZ
Shape: Fireball
Duration:6 minutes
At 2:10 AM i was in my back yard and saw an orange glow through my neighbors trees. It was going up (or approaching from the distance) but then went down for about 30 seconds.

I thought maybe it was a flare, except that it was orange, not red. Then it rose up (approached) again and stayed in one spot for a brief moment before moving in a north, northeastly direction.

It was moving slowly, and with the binoculars I could see what looked like a large flame/glowing ember, and above it a perfectly shaped dome, like the kind you put over a clock or figurine. The dome was translucent, like a jelly fish looks, colorwise.

The object continured across the sky and i lost sight of it when my neighbors trees got in the way. At one point red embers fell from it.
