Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes
Round Plasma fireball (orange/red) object moving in a north/north west direction, suddenly disappeared.

My wife had stepped out for a smoke. She started yelling for me to come quick. So naturally I responded promptly.

Coming from the east and heading in a north/northwest direction was a single fireball object. It was round in shape and orange/red in color. It appeared to be actively burning. Almost like plasma or liquid fire. It was lower in the sky than airliners cruise and moving slower than a meteor. Then it stopped for a few seconds and disappeared. It appeared larger than planes do even when they are landing at near by Saratoga airport.

It really freaked my wife out. Being a skeptic, she could not explain what she saw. I on the other hand thoroughly enjoyed the sighting.

I believe I have seen other unidentified objects in the past. Neither of us are a trained or active observer. That will change, I'm sure.
