National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report

Reported: 7/4/2019 7:19:47 AM 07:19
Posted: 7/5/2019
Location: Columbus, OH
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 1 minute
A fireball was witnessed by two adult men rising into Western sky above Columbus Ohio. Both men assumed it was a normal aircraft light coming towards us, light first, in the night sky.

When we realized it was flying upwards and towards the East, it flew behind a tree. We ran across my yard to get better perspective. When we found the object in the sky again, it had risen and appeared as a if it were riding along the Earth's outer atmosphere. My perspective made it appear like a distorted circle of light with a dark dot in the center, that I assume was an aircraft or missile.

The event took less than 2 minutes and neither of us can determine what we really saw.
