Location: Benicia, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5-10 min
A large silent Orange firey orb that seemed to have streams of light falling from it and shooting out from it .

Object was seen below cloud level traveling northeast. Pretty clear night with very light cloud cover. At first it looked like a fireball and we thought a plane was on fire. We watched it as it continued without any sound rather slowly with streamers or lights emitting from the fireball. The orb glowed bright orange and it looked as if the streamers were falling to the earth. Our whole family watched it until it left our vision. Sometimes it seemed to jerk around quickly. We live on a hill so we saw it for a long time then it seemed to go into the clouds.
