Shape: Fireball
Duration:20 seconds
Orange fireball slowly floats across the night sky.

Wednesday night/ Thursday morning I was leaving for work and noticed an orange glowing ball float across the sky. No noise was heard. It was heading toward the northeast on a straight path until it was no longer visible behind the treeline.

Fireworks were being set off at the time, however, I can say with near 100% certainty that this was not a firework.

The object had the appearance of a translucent bag with moving flames inside. Size/distance are hard to judge, but I would guess at least 2000 feet up and over 10 feet in diameter.
