Location: Derby, CT
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes
strange orange fireball streaks across sky,stops,shines two lights and turns into spacecraft and bolts straight up and out og sight.

I was walking a friend's dog on Hawthorne Ave., when I noticed what looked like a round fireball traveling from Shelton towards Derby fairly low in the sky. This light orange yellow fireball had a darker orange color around the outer edge. I thought it would shrink and burn out, but it continued to move rapidly towards where I was viewing this fascinating ball of flame, and then I pulled out my phone camera and clicked two photo's from the middle of the street, when all of a sudden the fireball shone two lights that did not blink, but just shone like it was attached to something solid.

Then all of a sudden the whole fireball went straight upwards and then changed directions and headed eastward for a few seconds, then I could see it staying still while clouds passed by, and then it took off straight upwards and out of sight.
