Orange Fireball Flies Over Menomonie Wisconsin

Saturday June 16th at about 11:30 - 11:35 pm 4 witnesses saw an orange fireball type of image or craft moving slowly through the sky from west to east. It was a large object that flew level and did not descend.

The craft/object was silent. It appeared to be flying lower than a normal airplane. The orange color and slow moving object caught the eye of one of our house guests and then three other people who were standing outside talking witnessed it as well (myself included).

One man ran to the end of the street so that he could continue to watch it until he finally lost sight of it behind the trees.

It was a hot and humid night and had been raining on and off all day. At the time this occured, the sky was clear with no rain present.
