Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 Min.
A rising or nearing bright yellow glowing rectangle stopped to create a fireball shape, dropped glitter-like substance, and disappeared

Upon arriving at a local restaurant, me and three other friends got out of our car to see a bright yellow glowing rectangular shape either coming towards us or ascending. This was to the north at a 65-degree angle.

This had captured the attention of around 15-20 people soliciting/socializing outside the restaurant.

After 10 seconds, it stopped and formed a very bright fireball. It was about four times as big as the North Star, which was conveniently next to it. It remained this shape and then began to periodically drop or shed a glitter-like substance from it. After glowing profusely, it began to flicker and then disappear. After it disappeared, it was not seen again. The overall condition of the night was clear skies and low 60's.
