Shape: Fireball
Bright orange fireball seen for a about a full minute.

Stuck my head out of the window to smoke a cigarette when I saw a slow moving bright orange light.

It looked like something would as if were falling through the atmosphere with a tail.

It appeared to be going one direction.

The light slowly dimmed as it went into the clouds.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the sighting occurred at night, and have changed the time to reflect that fact. PD))
