Location: Yankton, SD
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5-10 minutes
Orange fire ball that made a werid humming noise.

On 01/02/14 at about 2000 hrs I was on the east edge of town. I saw an orange fireball hovering near a local factory. While the object was hovering, there was a humming sound that I have not heard before. After about 5 minuets the object moved at a high rate of speed heading north.

I heard on the police scanner, that the local sheriff's office has also received a call about the same object and a deputy was dispatched to the area. I do not know if the responding officer saw the object or not.
