Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 mins
Fireball hovering in the night sky

It was around 10 pm, I was leaving my job with my co-worker as I noticed something in the sky. It was a amber- orange colored light that looked like a large fireball.

We both stopped in our tracks to look at it and I noticed that it seemed to be hovering. At the same time that we were looking at it a plane passed by so that's how we both knew it couldn't of been a plane.

After about 5 minutes of watching it I noticed it started moving very slowly straight up. I found it weird because it didn't move at an angle at all, it was moving directly north.

I wish I stayed longer to watch it, but I felt like staring at the sky in the middle of a mall parking lot was long enough lol
