Location: Oklahoma City, OK
Shape: Circle
Duration:55 seconds
Circular, bright orange object flying north in the sky that fell apart and disappeared.

Observers were two teenage girls about to go to college.

We were sitting in a park facing north when one of us noticed a strange light moving across the sky. It was circular and bright orange and it was going north. It was quite a bit larger than a star, but smaller than the moon. It was moving faster than the plane that was going east, although we don't know how close the plane was to the object. We saw it moving for about fifteen seconds, and then it paused in midair for about thirty seconds. Then about a third of it broke apart and fell. The light then disappeared.
