Shape: Fireball
Duration:2.5 seconds
Fireball of bright white light traveling from South to North.

My friend and I were outside , it was night time and a clear night. Plenty of stars visable when from the south came a streaking bright light and traveled north for about 2.5 seconds. At the end of this 2.5 seconds it became very bright white light , like a light bulb just before it burns out, and suddenly went dark. At first my friend and I thought it was a meteor. After thinking about what I saw I am not sure. The meteors I have seen in the past fizzle out. This thing became very bright and large. I can't really say how large but from the size of the light it was too big to have just went out. I would think that if it was a meteor it would have continued to move through the air and fizzled out.
