Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 seconds
Large, glowing, floating, red fireball/orb spotted in the sky for a very short time before it disappeared.

I was playing basketball in my backyard and out of the corner of my eye I noticed something in the sky. I turned and saw a large, bright, red, glowing object that looked like a fireball or an orb. It was a few miles away and made no sound and it was slowly floating downwards for a second before it just disappeared. I told my family and no one believed me. After a few minutes of them telling me that they didn't believe me, I started to question whether I had actually seen it because it was for such a short amount of time. The next morning I turned on the local radio and they were saying that people reported seeing UFOs in Mexico the day before. I am sure that it wasn't a meteorite or anything of that nature.
