Location: Southwick Beach State Park, NY
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 minutes (I saw)
Red/Orange Round Glowing Ball over Lake Ontario between Henderson and Sandy Creek at at Southwick Beach State Park. Did not move with wind, moved back and forth across the sky, then shot out further over the lake and disappeared really fast.

This was witnessed by myself, a medical doctor, and a probation officer (all reliable witnesses). We were camping at the beach, and none of us had consumed alcohol. The employees of the state park informed me they witness these "fireballs" frequently over the eastern shore of Lake Ontario, especially at Southwick Beach State Park, Ellisburg/Henderson, NY.
