Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 minutes
FIREBALL OVER NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE

I SAW A CIGAR SHAPE WHITE CRAFT STREEM ACROSS THE SKY, FOLLOWED BY A SMALL EGG SHAPE ALSO WHITE CRAFT. WITHIN A FEW SECONDS THERE WAS A F-14 FLY BY THAT FEW INBETWEEN BOTH CRAFTS. THE CIGAR CRAFT SLOWLY DISAPPEARED INTO THE CLOWDS. ( IT WAS DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE SIZE OF CIGAR CRAFT, BUT THE F-14 WAS ABOUT THE SAME SIZE AS THE EGG SHAPE CRAFT) THEN THE FIREBALL JUST CAME OUT OF THE BLUE IT LOOKED LIKE A BUNCH OF BALOONS INGULFING ITSELF THE CONTAINED THE MOST VIVIDEST OF COLORES, AND THIS FIREBALL WENT ON FOR 10-15 MINUETS. THE EGGSHAPE CRAFT WAS GONE AND THEN THE FIREBALL WAS GONE . I WAS FACING TRUE NORTH. LOW TO MID CLOUD COVER. NO REAL WIND. FROM BEGINNING TO END A DOG WAS BARKING THE WHOLE TIME BEGINNING TO END. THE COLORS WERE VIVID BROWNS, REDS PURPLES.
