fire ball like object over springfield, mo

Swimming at twilight with my family in the backyard, my daughter asked me what was in the sky. I looked up and seen a fireball like object traveling below the clouds. It was traveling in a straight line from the south east to the north west and appeared to be on fire.

From our viewing angle it was slightly north of the southern end of Springfield and appeared to be almost directly above us.

I brought it to my wife’s attention and the three of us watched it streak across the sky until it disappeared in the tree line.

The whole event lasted approximately one minute.

It was 21:28 on 07/05/2011. The sky was mostly clear with a few high clouds.

I work in the HVAC industry, my wife is a RN and my daughter is in high school.
