Duration:10 minutes
I saw a red fire ball that I thought was a plane on fire coming down diagonally from the sky.

It landed in the ocean at first beach in Newport. I was about to call the news but another person at the beach had called the police because they also saw the fire ball hit the water. After it hit the water it continued to glow for a few seconds and then disappeared.
