Duration:4 minutes
cigar shaped fireball ascending up diagonally then disappeared.

my husband and i were sitting on our front porch with our dogs at 9:30 pm. my husband told me to turn around where we both saw a shape. it was long like a cigar or chevron. it was not a plane. there were no wings. it made no noise. it had a solid red light on it and the rest of it looked as if it were engulfed in flames. it also appeared to have a haze or aura around it. it appeared over the front of our subdivision, it continued ascending so fast until it got over a factory next door to us, then the flame went out, it slowed down, the red light stayed on, then it just disappeared. this only lasted like 3-4 minutes
