12/28/99 lakeland florida orange ball

I spotted a 'fireball' from where we were staying in lakeland. It was as I remember, quite a dark night,and rather quiet as well. I looked north at around 2305hrs. The object passed across the sky at a speed no man made craft could possibly attain. I powered across the sky from north east to north west and was only in sight for around one minute. I felt that if I had gone to get my cacorder, I would miss it. it was very high, a kind of orange setting sun look about it, no noise at all, the sky was clear and very cold.
