Location: Lenexa, KS
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 70 seconds
very low ball of fire slowly floating over Kansas City metro area

We were sitting on a patio facing East when we saw an object that looked like a bright orange fireball. It looked pretty low and was moving at a very slow speed. There wasn't any noise or sudden movements, and it didn't leave a trail behind it.

The object was moving from SSE to NNW for about one minute before it raised altitude and disappeared into the sky. No flash of lights or any reason to believe it exploded.

It was so close and big enough that I could record the whole thing on my phone.
