Shape: Fireball
Duration:a couple of minutes
It was a huge ball of fire falling one moment then accelerating upwards the next.

I am a student at the University of Oklahoma in anthropology. I never believed in UFO's or anything like it. In June of '97, my boyfriend and I were driving on Airport Road in Weatherford, Oklahoma. We were in a convertible. I was looking above the sunset when I saw a huge ball of fire fall towards the earth. It then stopped and went straight up into the clouds. I would've thought it was a meteor but they don't stop or change direction quite like that. My boyfriend didn't see it. He was watching the road I guess, but I nearly made him wreck when I screamed "What is that?" It didn't take very long at all. At the most a couple of minutes. I don't know what it was. I tried to figure it out and I've heard of sun dogs and all that, but the way it moved was so bizarre. I don't think even an Air Force jet can manoevre quite like this thing did.
