Shape: Fireball
Duration:30 seconds
Glowing fireball going through night sky

My wife and I were outside playing with the dogs when I noticed an orange ball of light ascending through the air from the North aky. I called attention to it because it looked as if a plane were on fire in the air but had none of the colored directional lights typically seen on aircraft at night.

The object moved relatively slowly to the South and the "fire" seemed to grow and then get smaller while flying through the air (just like a fire would in a fireplace).

We could not make out any kind of shape for the flying object, but there was definitely fire. We heard no sound accompanying this craft. After about 30 seconds, the object seemed to disappear or just fly out of sight. We are not crazy people and are not implying the existence of UFOs from other planets, etc.

I found this sight while trying to find out if there was a plane on fire in the area but after reading a few other similar accounts, felt like it made sense to share this sighting in hopes of an explanation.
