Location: Parma, OH
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes
Orange illuminated fireball shaped object moving silently over Parma, Ohio

I got home from class at 9:30pm and took the dog out front. F loating above at some unknown altitude was an orange roundish object with a single bright light beneath it. I called my wife outside and asked her what that was.

She retrieved our binoculars, and we observed the object. It moved across the sky from east to south, changed direction to straight south, then went straight west. It was not a parachute flair. It maintained altitude, and made no noise. Duration was about two to three minutes.
