Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes
Bright orange fireball high above Brandenton, Florida.

I took my dog out to the front lawn around 9:30 p.m. At this moment, I could hear a commercial airliner flying above. The airliner traveled from East to West at a high altitude. It was at this moment when a bright orange fireball in the sky caught my attention. The fireball appeared as a oversized star and I assumed it could be a possible satellite in orbit.

The object traveled from West to East. It moved slightly faster than a commercial airliner. The object appeared as a orange fireball in the Western sky.

As it flew direct overhead, the light faded away. Although there was no light or glow to the object, I could see the object continue in the sky to the far East.

Now the object appears to be larger with no lights.
