Location: North Massapequa, NY
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 minutes
My son and I were travelling north heading home at approximately 9:00 pm. We were about to turn west onto our street when we saw what looked like a burning ball in the sky about 75 feet above the ground at the next intersection and moving east. We did not turn but continued north towards it. The ball of fire looked like it was rectangluar towards it’s lower half and it turned north. As we got to the next street, it disappeared. We made a right turn down that street going east. When we got to the next block, we saw it again, this time it was about 5 blocks south from where we last saw it. We stopped to take a picture of it and it began going up and disappeared in the sky very rapidly and disappeared in a matter of seconds. The entire sighting lasted less than 2 minutes.
