Shape: Fireball
Duration:6 sec
very bright ball of fire falling from sky

While traveling by car north on route 27 from Orlando, Florida, to Leesburg, Florida, near Clermont, Florida, approximately 10:00 pm, a fire ball appeared high in the sky and dropped vertically. It could have been the size of a trash can lid, but it was difficult to tell the size. It was definitely on fire but the fire extinguished before touching tree level. When the fire went out, nothing else was visible to me. The speed seemed slow for the size of the object falling.
