It was an orange ball of fire, leaving a smoke trail behind it. Came to a stop between an 1/8 to a 1/4 mile from us approx. 500 ft high. As it stayed stationary, it changed to a white.

About a minute later, started moving slowly to the east. as it moved slowly the light dimmed and went out. we thought at first it was a helicopter crash landing until it stop at that close of a distance and you could not here it at all. it was almost dead silent all around us.
