July 4th, at 11pm witnessed orange fireball with traveling across the entire night sky in Coon Rapids Minnesota.

At about 11pm at night as my husband, mother- in-law, my children and I were stucked in traffic leaving a 4th of July fireworks celebration in Conn Rapids Minnesota a teenager in the street next to our car pointed up at the night sky and said something about "Hey look at that". Another teenager next to him joking siad' The aliens are coming". But the first teenager kept looking in the sky. This grabbed my attention. I looked out the passenger window and noticed a orange round fireball traveling from north to south across the sky. At first I thought it was shooting star but it was obiviously on fire and as it got closer to the southern horizon if seemed to get smaller and dying out. I was pointing out the car window. Both my husband and mother-in-law watched it also. I would imaging that the car behind us and people walking on the sidewalk witnessed us pointing up and saw it also.
