Duration:3 minutes
Glowing orange fireball over Missoula, 10:30 p.m., July 1

It was a glowing, orange fireball flying low. At first I thought it was fireworks or a bottle rocket but quickly determined it wasn’t. I thought a plane was on fire or something like that. It glowed bright orange, like fire. It moved slowly south east, again, flying low.

It made no sound or left any trail. It lasted long enough that my partner and I could move to the driveway to get a better view. It continued on its path until it was too far away to see anymore.

This object was seen by a university professor and a university staff person.
