Duration:1/2 min.
Bright orange/red fireball crosses sky in western Iowa in summer of 1965.

First observed object almost directly overhead heading south/east, fireball was the color of a auto brake light, but more intense.maybe half the size of a dime held at arm's lenght.Didn't appear to change speed or direction or altitude.I heard no sound, and quessed it to be flying very high.Lost sight at about 30 degrees from horizon.Local news from TV in Sioux City made a mention of ufo sightings just before my friend's parents called us out to see something in the sky.
