Duration:20 minutes
A fire in the sky for 20 minutes.

I was sitting at a campfire in a friend’s backyard on July 30th 2011. At around 2218 I saw a glow in the sky to the northeast of us. I got brighter and clearer to the point where it looked like what I called a “campfire in the sky”. That is exactly what it looked like, a glowing yellow/orange ball of fire. It stayed in the same position for at least 20 minutes before it just vanished. I was not the only one present who saw it a friend and here daughter also saw it and where just as confused as I was about what it could be. I maintain that I have no idea what I saw. All I know is that it was very strange.
