Location: Newport, NC
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 seconds
Out of nowhere fireball appeared and disappeared. Red/Orange in color.

I was sitting on my deck around 7:30 pm talking to my employee and my son. Out of nowhere behind them above the tree line a red/orange fireball appeared. I said to my son and employee.."What is that?"

They both turned to witness the fireball only for it to just dissappear in a matter of seconds.

I have yet to see it again and to this day wonder what it could have exploded and imploded. Was quite strange!!
