Shape: Fireball
Duration:60 seconds
While driving east on 80/35 near the Merle hay exit A large cherry red to orange fireball. It moved as though it may land in front of me.

I first thought it was an airplane in trouble. It flew like it was making a pattern. It had a large tail then went down. No explosion no noise. Very cool to see, as it raises so many questions.
