Duration:20-25 min
Bright orange light, almost like a fireball over Phoenix on 1/15/05-Second sighting

An object in the north valley sky which was noticeable because it was a bright orange. At first, we thought it was an airplane or something, but airplanes don't have lights like that. It was moving south very slowly and would get dim and then bright again until it eventually disappeared. This sighting really started to get us curious as to what it was because the week of christmas three of us saw a similar object coming from the same direction and was moving at the same pace. This object however was a fireball because when it got almost right over us something that appeared to be embers fell from it shortly before it burned out or disappeared. We did not see any embers fall from the one last night, but many more people seen it this time. What is it???????
