While waiting outside of building to clock in we saw a large glowing object with a red tail of fire slowly travel from the west to the southeast horizon. It never fell.

While me and some co-workers were waiting in front of the building that we clock in for work, one of the women of our group exclaimed," Hey! That looks like something is on fire in the sky. At first we laughed until we looked up toward the north of us and saw what looked to be a large object glowing flying through the sky with a steady red tail of flame. It appeared to be traveling from the west and slowly turning toward the southeast. At that time of the morning there were no planes in the air and very little lights around the campus. There was no doubt that it was not a lighting illusion or an airplane. This kept a steady distance from the ground all the while we witnessed it. I ran further into the parking lot to keep it in sight until it was covered from sight by trees. I have no doubt in my mind that it was still at the same altitude even as it disappeared over the horizon. If it had been a plane in that much trouble we would have seen it go down way before it went out of our sight.
