Location: Farmington, MO
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 1 minute
Observed 2 yellowish/golden fireballs

At approx. 9:00 p.m I observed a dazzling and golden colored fireball traveling from south to north. To me it somewhat resembled a yellowish/golden street light. The object was traveling at about the distance of a low flying plane and at a slightly slower speed. I watched it for approx. 45 seconds/ to 1 minute, until it faded from sight.

Less than 5 minutes afterwards, I was gazing west and was surprised to see another fireball exactly like it and at about the same height. Distance from me appeared to be less than half a mile.

The fireball was traveling west to east, but I was only privileged to witness it for about 3 seconds. It abruptly vanished as if it had never been and all that remained to be seen was a patch of empty black sky. I waited for it to reappear. Perhaps in another part of the sky, but it never did.
