Shape: Fireball
Duration: 15 seconds
Witnessed and photographed a low flying fireball heading northward at 4 am that did not apppear like any fly object I ever saw.

At approximately a few minutes after 4 am, my alarm sounded. I awoke and went to the bathroom. I decided to reset my alarm on my phone for an additional 15 mins of sleep. As I was doing this standing next to my bed a bright light caught my attention out the window next to the bed.

I pulled the shade further aside to get a better view and was struck by the odd apparently flaming object at a seemingly low altitude traveling from the south heading basically northward.

Since I had my phone in my hand I quickly was able to turn on the camera and take 3 pictures. The pictures are at quite a distance and the screen in the window added reticulation to the images but it is clear there are no red, green or landing lights like might be on a low flying plane (I work close to the regional airport and usually arrive at work in the dark and I am accustomed to what a plane leaving or arriving at a fairly low altitude looks like in many varying weather conditions) and it appeared elongated in the direction of travel and appeared to be emanating flames in all directions.

Though we were experiencing a lunar eclipse atthis same time, the moon was in another direction and there were only spotty clouds and none in the area of the sighted object.

Also no sound was noticed.
