|Quick moving fireball
Myself and 3 other people were having a bon fire in my back yard. We live in the country surrounded by woods and farm fields.
In the Northwest sky we the youngest of us noticed a bright light in the sky. We all turned and watched as the light became brighter and turned orange then went blue and streaked across the sky to the West. It left a blue line behind it. It looked like a comet's tail.
Then it later appeared coming from the west going to the north leaving that same blue line as it went across the sky. We saw it again coming from the north going south. Almost as if it were circling around us. It covered a large area in very little time.
There was never any sound to it. And when it appeared it was only seen for maybe 2 minutes then it moved and was gone.
This went on for about an hour, then it disappeared to the West.
