Shape: Fireball
Duration: 90 seconds
Fireball like object ascending then turned abruptly and hesitates during flight path

My husband (ex-military) and I were outside on our back porch when he said to me “check out that light”.

I looked in the direction he was pointing which was the Southeast.

I saw a fireball like object rising upwards in the distance.

Unsure how far the distance was, compare it to the size of a baseball visually.

One object.

Yellow-orange in color.

Fireball shape.

Could clearly see it under the cloud cover in the nighttime sky at 9:29pm (21:29). I told my husband to check what time it was just after the object turned abruptly.

It was quick in movement headed in a straight line towards the North.

During its flight path we noticed it would hesitate, like it paused then would continue on the straight path. This happened two times.

No trails, no streaks behind it.

Then it disappeared. Maybe the cloud cover obstructed our view.

No sound was heard and it was a quiet night.

Not a flare. Not a star. Not a plane. Not a helicopter.
