Sphere like fireball over Saint Thomas On. Canada

In the heart of the city of St. Thomas Ontario Canada on Aug 9 2013 approximately 10 pm (Eastern Standard Time), a red and orange sphere like fireball had been spotted by four adult people coming from the southwestern sky heading in a northeasterly direction.

Even with the city lights were very few stars are seen, this phenomenon was very prominent and did not in any way, shape a conventional craft like an airplane.

On a steady course, the speed was faster than an airplane but slower than a meteor or comet.

The fireball looking very much like a round flair but had no trail or solid debris behind it and did not dissipate during the two minutes of observation until traveling out of sight.

Approximately 10:20 pm, another sphere like fireball had been spotted with the same description, coming from the south southern sky heading in a northeasterly direction.
