Duration:4 seconds
Orange fireball in sky.

I was walking, talking with friends about Jupiter in the night sky, and I looked above to the Southern-ish sky and saw a bright orange fireball about twice the brightness and diameter of the appearance of Jupiter (Currently the brightest object in the sky following the moon). After nearly 3 to 4 seconds, it faded away into nothing. The object did not move, and was extremely bright. I have since heard of four similar events in the surrounding areas near Potsdam, NY, in the past 7 days.
