Location: Vergennes, VT
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 2-3 minutes
Characteristics: The object changed color
Reddish-orange orb that moved noiselessly from east to west, about 1,000 feet up, then suddenly shot straight up until it was no longer

A group of us was sitting outside camping. One of our group said, I wonder what that is?

We looked up and saw a larges reddish-orange orb moving toward us (east to west). It was glowing like it was lit from inside. The colors appeared to be moving, with even a hint of blue visible much like a fire.

It did not make any sound whatsoever. It was about 1,000 feet up and from where we stood it looked about the size of a dinner plate.

It continued to move toward us. It definitely was not a plane, helicopter, weather balloon, hot air balloon, flare, Chinese lantern, or anything else of the sort. It stopped almost over us (probably about 200 feet from the shore of the lake).

It stayed there for a moment or two and then suddenly shot straight up, very fast. It kept going up in a straight line until it looked like one of the many stars (it was a clear night). We kept watching and then it became smaller than one of the stars until we could no longer see it.
