Shape: Cone
Duration:4-5 minutes
We saw a giant fireball pushing a long cone shape

A friend and I were sitting on back patio waiting for the grill to be ready. I looked over my left shoulder and saw a huge fireball(approx. the diameter of half of a school bus. It was yellow and orange and never lost intensity the entire sighting. It was pushing a coneish shape. We could see the outline clearly but inside the outline was blackish-grey. It flew slowly over my neighbor's house aprox. 500 feet high and 400 feet away from us. It maintained same heighth for 4-5 minutes traveling into a heat lightning storm in the NorthEast. It made absolutely no noise and no fire debris or jet stream was visible from fireball. My son also witnessed it for approx. 2 minutes. He took a video on cell phone and I took 1 picture. When we went to view, niether were there. Gallery was empty and not even a poor quality picture or video......nothing. It was so close I could have hit it with a bullet. Never believed but now have no choice. Most incredible!!
