An orange fireball like light moved right to left, than stopped and hovered.

I SAW AN ORANGE FIREBALL MOVE RIGHT TO LEFT THAN HOVER! I saw an orange fireball move right to left, than hover. I am not the only one to see it yesterday July 4, 2007. I was inside helping my girlfriend cook, when my brother says come outside there is a strange light in the sky. I ran outside to see what it was. I looked up and saw an orange fireball moving south west. Almost like a meteor without a tail.

As I watched it, my hole family came outside and saw it, as well as my next door neighbors. I was astonished when the fireball like light stopped and started to move backwards towards north east. It then stopped again and hovered for about five minutes. I could not believe what I was seeing at this point. Everyone on my street, outside at the time, saw it.

After hovering, the light then changed direction again. It start to head east. I watched it move off in the distance and become real dim. It looked like it turned into a star and then disappeared. I have never seen anything like this in the sky before. It was so odd that I got goose bumps all over my body. I was actually freaked out by the strange orange fireball looking light.
