Reported: 10/28/2010 5:59:43 PM 17:59
Posted: 11/21/2010
Location: Cape Canaveral, FL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2-3 minutes
Large reddish orange fireball very visible in Cape Canaveral sky around 9pm on 10-27-10

On the night of 10-26-10 I saw a shooting star, made a wish and thought nothing more of it. Then on the night of 10-27-10 I was standing outside on the phone with my boyfriend and I looked up and saw this large red object that resembled a fireball.

At first sight I thought it was an airplane but the whole object appeared to be red or reddish orange. I have tried looking on the internet to see if maybe there was a weather balloon or something in the air that late at night. I am 39 years old and have never seen anything like this before.

Then I thought maybe it was a comet or meteor, not quite sure what to make of it. I kept telling my boyfriend I couldn't believe what I was seeing and was very shaken by it.

I just want to know if there was anyone else that seen the same thing I saw. I have no clue what a weather balloon would even look like and have never seen a comet that big!

Could someone give me any information on this please? Thank you.
