Location: State College, PA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 minutes
As I sat in my room and contemplated how much school work I would have to do later I looked out the window and noticed a fiery object moving slowly across the sky. I watched it for a minute and noticed that it wasn't moving in a steady direction. I thought maybe the fiery look was a combination of different flashing lights but as it got closer and more directly above me it was close enough that I could see this was not the case. I couldn't make out any silhouette. I called my brother and we both went outside and observe it object make a slow arc across town but not in a way that helicopters or planes normally fly.

The speed was sporadic and it didn't move in a straight line. It eventually moved away and ascended so that I could barely make out the light except for what might be confused as a colored star or planet.
