Shape: Circle
Duration:2 seconds
Fiery large globe, no tail. Direction of flight: 60 degrees, from south to north. Two-second flight.

This appeared more a celestial body than a vehicle or craft. It entered at 60 degrees, north from south, one-quarter up from the horizon. It was a fiery, golden globe, not as large as a full moon. It had no tail. As it reached what I would have assumed to have been impact (given the hilly terrain beyond the trees), there was the suggestion of flaring. I imagined that if it had indeed reached Earth, it would have set vegetation on fire or broken through a roof. There were no such reports in the area.
