Location: Cement City, MI
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object, The object changed color
A ball of light, followed by fire, went through the sky and stopped to blend in as a star.

I was walking home and on my way home I saw a shooting star which drew my attention to the sky. As I walked and watched I saw this big streak of light crashing down from the sky. The color of the light is the same as a bulb in the pitch black. It appeared to be crashing due to the fact streaks of fire dashed through the trail of light behind it, which I realized was smoke.

After crashing at alarming speeds the object abruptly stopped and faded its colors to match that of a star with a red/blue ring around it.
