Location: Poland, ME
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 minutes
an orange light that slowly dropped and flickered out.

A large orange ball...larger than any stars that changed to red and green with a bright light in the center..it hovered for a while and slowly went down like the sun on the horizon...as it went down it became a darker orange and with bonoculars you could see a faint light following behind kinda like a tail. We at first thought it was a comet but it became more and more an unfamiliar object. it lasted about 10 minutes than flicker out.
