White fuzzy circle, red streak, fireball, acceleting at a very fast rate, gone...

I work at a ware-house in West Eugene, OR. At approximately 9:45, I overheard two employees talking about, "the strangest thing I have ever seen." They related the story to me. Looking due west, towards the eugene airport, they saw a white light travelling in the sky, "at the pace of a usual airliner," traveling from northwest to southeast. While it was the same speed of usuall aircraft,it just looked like a fuzzy light object. It continued to travel south, then developed a red streak behind it (did not mention if it was fire or anything) traveled for a few seconds, then burst into a large fireball. (I asked him if he was exagerating, and he said no, "A real fireball.) THen the white object took off at an incredible rate, Southeast, then dissapeared. We talked about it around 9:45 to 9:50. This is my first time reporting anything like UFO's or stuff, but my buddies saw it, was amazed, and was confirmed by another forklift loader on a seperate end of the building.
