Second fireball moves across sky. Likely flare afloat.

Same thing as previous post. This time it seemed to flicker considerably more, like a flare. Then it flickered out. It followed the same pattern as the one reported a week ago by me. This is most likely a flare, though it really seems to move faster than that...a fast drfit. If it is a flare, it isn't too wise, given the wildfires here. Saw object in sky, watched it drift at good rate of speed and flicker, then flicker out for a solid four or five minutes. Snapped picture with video camera. I will photograph the next object with a digital camera to enhance any more resolution out of the image.
