Location: Bornheim (Germany),
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Very slow moving, glowing, circular object at an extreme distance.

I saw what I thought was an airplane traveling in the direction from Bonn, Germany, toward Aachen, Germany. I did a double-take when I noticed that the object looked bright like the sun glowing gold.

I ran and got my 30x optical zoom camera and took a few shots, as well as a short video. It was around sunset and had thought, this could just be a strange reflection from the plane which happens all the time. It just seemed very bright.

What appear to be con-trails just seem a bit unusual as well.
