Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 hour
Red fireballs

I was watching tv when I noticed something out the corner of my eye tha looked like a plane at first, but after stepping outside to get a better look I was dumbstruck at what I saw.

The first time it passed it looked like a flickering flame in the sky that was moving a little faster than a plane and much larger than any star that was in the sky (tonight was a clear sky night).

I thought nothing of it and went back to watching tv and 15 minutes later I saw it again and this time ran outside to get to see it longer and more clearly. It was again a red flickering fireball type object.

Another 25 minutes later it came again but this time I brought my stepbrother out to see it and at first when I told him he thought it was a meteor or something but after he saw it he agreed it was not that ora plane.

The object had no flashing lights that would indicate it being a plane and I could see no definate object. just the same red fireball moving in a straight line all three times.
