Reported: 7/5/2012 1:59:54 PM 13:59
Posted: 8/5/2012
Location: Springfield, IL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 minutes
We were sitting outside when one of the witnesses said look at that flashing light over there.(we were facing south) We all thought it was just an airplane, because many airplanes often fly over the area. With us all being familiar with what an airplane looks like, we knew it was not that.

It started out as a slowly floating red/orange/white flashing light that looked as if it was coming towards us. Then the flying ball of light jolted up in the air. It climbed higher and higher until it disappeared. This all happened in less then 2 minutes.
