Strange Fireball Floats over Carbondale PA

The object looked like a bright fireball traveling from the west at a very slow pace that lasted about 4 minutes then started to rise. At that time it got lost in the cloud cover for a few seconds and re appeared through the clouds when at that point it shot of to the south with much faster speed. This was the second time within a three-week span that this occurred. The first time it just floated from south to north at a very slow pace.
