Posted: 11/8/2005
Location: South Pasadena, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3-5 minutes
FIreball shaped object overhead, seen, then heard, then GONE without a trace.

I'm always scanning everything, esp. the sky as it's so beautiful in the later part of the day.

So I'm walking my dog and I'm looking up and I happened to notice a fireball shaped object jetting across the sky with a short, blazing trail/tail behind it. I thought "Not a jet, because a jet's tail extends behind it and stays in the sky looking like a whitish line and this ain't doing THAT!".

So I continued to watch this fireball moving across the sky, not super fast but definitely not slowly either! The tail stuck right with it, both a beautiful, blazing bright yellow-orange color....in other words, a fireball.

I called a friend immediately, told her what I was observing and what I took it to be--a UFO. By this point, I couldn't see the object anymore, not one trace or hint of anything having been up in the sky moments earlier. I kept looking up in all directions-nothing.

Then maybe 2 minutes later I heard what sounded like jet engines overhead but could see absolutely NO SIGN of any type of plane, not when I first heard the "jet engines", not before I heard anything and after losing sight of the UFO and not after the sounds were gone. NOTHING, not even residual fading sounds.

Saw a UFO-poof, it's gone. Heard "engines" for a moment-poof, over. No fadeout....no plumes or trails…
