Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 minutes
While visiting a friend on Buzzard Bay, in Mass. We both saw a round fire ball in the sky, coming from the west, traveling south/east.

First siting was on 8/10/11, after dark, and the second time was tonight, 8/12, about 20:30. It flew slightly erratic, and either got farther away, as it got smaller and smaller, then disappeared, to the south.

It appeared as an orange ball of fire, and with binoculars, it looked like it had a clear type of ball above it, which was illuminated by they fire ball.

There was no sound involved.
