Location: Lake Superior, MI
Shape: Fireball
Duration:7-10 min.
Orange fireball that zigged and zagged accross the sky then just stopped.

My family and I were camping at Lake Superior State Forest Campground about 12 miles east of Grand Marais Michigan. We had just finished a late supper and were getting ready to settle down by the fire and relax before turning in.

My son said "What is that?" We turned to look and there was an orange glowing object going from east to west and then turned north. It stopped or seemed to and then did like a zig zag and then stopped again until it dissapeared. We were all speechless!

We stood on the bank by the lake and watched even after it disappeared. It lasted at least 7 min.

The next morning I asked some of our fellow campers if they had seen anything, One told us they seen something the night before but it was traveling in the opposite direction from what we had seen.

Then campers down farther said they had seen it too. It happened just after sunset and they were down on the beach watching the sunset when they seen it.

The object glowed as though it was on! fire, it was orange and red. I thought it was a meteor but last time I checked they went in a straight path through the sky and this deffinitely changed directions at least three if not four times!!!

I have seen some strange things but this was by far one of the most memorable and unexplained!
