Location: Cheyenne, WY
Shape: Unknown
Duration:5 seconds
An orange object viewed intermmitantly in the night sky heading east at a relatively slow speed.

The object that was observed appeared to be moving in an easterly direction. When I first observed this, it was glowing orange with a very short tail behind it. The object then had smaller glowing pieces coming off of it. This lasted for approx-imately three seconds. The glowing object then went out and reappeared for 2 seconds. It seemed odd because of the slow speed that it was moving at. If I had to guess on the speed of the object, I would say less than 5000 mph.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date in December 2005 is approximate. Re-entering space debris usually is visible for more than just a few seconds. PD))
