Location: Middleton, WI
Shape: Sphere
Duration:4 seconds
Spherical red and white bright light moving strangely.

I was driving home, heading West when I saw something that resembled a big shooting star in the sky while I was driving downhill. It headed North. Suddenly the "shooting star" became brighter (so bright that it brightened the top leaves of some tall trees up in the hill) and bigger and it appeared to spin, like a sphere, in red, white and yellow lights. After that it slowed down and disappeared as if had exploded in tiny little particles or something. Very VERY different from a meteor reaching atmosphere. I have never seen anything like it, apparently neither have the other drivers. 3 cars almost crashed and all I heard were people yelling inside their vehicle in amazement. I called a friend to inform what I have seen. He lives by the airport and in 5 minutes he said there were F15 airships taking up flight from the East side airport (at 8pm... weird).
