Occurred : 10/2/2015 22:30 (Entered as : 10/02/15 22:30)
Reported: 10/2/2015 8:29:44 PM 20:29
Posted: 10/9/2015
Location: Ottawa (Canada), ON
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 15 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Three passes of an orange fireball object flying over Old Ottawa East in Ontario, Canada.

Clear evening, no clouds, 12 celcius, I saw fireball like object orange in colour with a light orange plume trailing in the rear, travelling from east to West over the area of Ottawa, close to St-Paul's University.

There were three passes in total and cannot ascertain if it was the same fireball or three distinct objects. No mechanical sounds heard.

Area is not normally flight path for commercial airlines which made this even more noticeable.
