Location: Tucson, AZ
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Fireball, East Tucson.

I saw a large white object with red around the edges that I thought may be a runaway lantern that was on fire. The object then headed North East, shrunk down to the size of a star or a plane light, moved in straight line, then disappeared.

I live near the base, but there was no aircraft noise.

I tried to take a photo once I pulled into my driveway. It does not appear but does show a streak of a light tinged red.
