Orange flamed fireball spotted from Ajman beach 11.30pm Friday 19 Feb 2010

Husband and I were sitting outside a cafe facing Ajman beach when to our left we spotted a low, large, bright orange ball, inside of which were flames and which was moving quite quickly. It appeared to be coming towards us but then as it seemed to be getting closer it changed direction and veered towards the horizon, climbing into the sky until it faded out of sight.

I asked my husband what he thought and he agreed with me, it looked like a fireball, the flames very clearly visible. There were no other lights surrounding it, no noise and as many airports operate in this area, planes are easily distinguishable from this. This was a definite ball of light and as said, flames inside visible to the naked eye.

We are not sure whether it was some jet engined aircraft or an actual fireball. But the beach this night was very busy with people and this was simply too big to miss, so we are just waiting to see if others report it.
