was driving down the road and seen a round metalic object soar across the sky in front of me and my wife.then it got a flaming tail on the end of it then just vanished.don't know what it was,first time i ever seen anything like that.thought maybe you might be able to tell me what it was.there was no sound or explosion of it hitting ground ,it just disappeared.was only about 50 feet above the trees,moving very fast.thought it was a plane crashing at the Latrobe airport but it wasn't.can you please look into this for me so i can settle my wife down.
