Shape: Rectangle
Duration:3-5 minutes
Saw a rectangular object fireball orange/reddish/yellow approximately 300 feet up moving in a straight path east northeast direction.

Stepped out my front door making a phone call. While talking notice an orange/reddish/yellow glow in sky coming from westerly direction.

I kept my eyes on it seemed to be about 200 feet above trees was moving in a straight path traveling north but mostly east direction. As it passed over house I followed it at one point it had a rectangular shape I think it resembled a kite type frame kinda a stick Frame it was brief then it was just a fireball passed over watched until it disappeared from view. Lasted a couple minutes moved at a steady pace not fast not slow. Reminded me of watching a glider plane. I do not recall any sound it made. Do have photos
