Duration: ~60 seconds
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Orange/Yellow Fireball across the sky with a curve

Witnessed a fairly large orange/yellow fireball which seemed very close over the north sky of Lindstrom, MN. I immediately took out my cell phone to record, but it didn't appear on the screen even though a much dimmer star to its left showed up. At first I thought it was a plane on fire, but then it started elevating and curved its direction roughly 45 degrees. Even at its greatest distance I could still see the flickering which closest resembled fire. There was no sound emitted at all.
