Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 minutes
fiery orange orb

approx.8:20p.m. i was in bedroom watching tv while my wife was in bathroom when she said "quick come here what is this?" when i got there my wife said she thought what she first saw was an airplane that was on fire, it was in the eastern sky travelling west when i looked out the window the object was now stationary, the best way i could describe it as being orbital in shape and emitting a fiery orange color about it, the color was unlike any other color that i have witnessed in the sky before very intense, hard to judge altitude but i would approximate 1-2000 ft. we opened the window and there was no sound, i decided to get my binoculars i did so but was unable to get a good view thru the window i then decided to go outside for a better view (we live in a rural area where there are no street lights very dark) however by the time i went outside to my disappointment object was gone, went back into house where my wife stayed she said when i left object grew dim! mer and dimmer and then was gone. surreal
