Location: Eastvale, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2-3 minutes
Single Red Fireball

I stepped outside with my mother to enjoy the evening on our front porch and we started gazing at the stars. We were about to go inside, and out of the corner of my eye I saw one pulsating fireball.

At that time I stopped my mother from entering the house and I pointed it out to her. At first my mother and I were trying to rationalize it, but in our hearts we knew exactly what it was because we have witnessed them before on New Years Eve 12/31/13 twice in one night at separate times. The only difference between this sighting and our last sighting is that there was only one single fireball this time. They usually show up in groups of 5 or more. We know this because of our previous sightings from New Years Eve. The sighting we witnessed tonight was just one fireball. It had the same characteristics as our previous sighting. It was not high up in the sky and it appeared to be rising. It was gradually floating up further and further into the sky while it simultaneously pulsated. It was red and had a orange tint, but more red than orange. It was a lot larger than any star we had seen in the sky, about 3 times the size. It was the only object that was that low in the sky. It would appear larger every time it pulsated. We watched it for about 2 minutes or so making sure that it is a fireball before we e went ahead and reported it. As it continued to rise up from what seemed to be a really low point in the sky, it started to fade away. Then it just vanished.
