On the moring of 03-12-00, I was waiting outside in front of Denny's located at 590 E Los Angeles Av. Simi Valley, Ca. for a friend to show up, which she did at 1:19 pm. At that moment, we both seen a white/orange fire ball with a tail approx. 20 times longer the the Dim. of the object in the South-west sky heading toward us. To me, it looked like a meteor going through the lower atmosphere,or an airplane with it's wing on fire. This lasted approx. 2 minutes. then the odject turn into a white dot with a blue haze around it and slowed down very fast. That this point the odject was almost above us in the clear early morning sky. Then the odject stop above us at a high altitude for approx. 3 to 4 minutes it turn into a hazes red ball, and faded away into the morning sky. .
