Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 seconds
Orange fireball heading down to ground

I decided to report this after reading about the fireballs seen three days later. What others reported is the same as I saw; a orange red fireball very low and seemingly heading towards earth.

I saw it for only a moment and lost sight of it as it was so low it went behind some 2 story buildings & trees. Moved quickly but was very large and had a firey tail. No sounds.

My wife and I saw it 5 seconds after stepping outside for a cigarette._
