|Orange fireball observed in sky over Southern Oregon.
At about 10:15 pm, June 26, 2014, we observed a single yellowish/orange fireball in the northern sky. We had light cloud cover yet we were able to see the round fireball. Had the fireball been higher in the sky I believe the fireball would have been more visible only as light coming through the clouds. Yet, it was either below the cloud layer or just barely into it as we were able to see the glow and a small dot in the center. It stayed stationary as we continued to watch. As we watched in disbelief and were equally curious as to what this object was, it began to "burn out". Though as we watched it we were not sure if it actually did "burn out" or moved away from us.
We do know that this object did not move laterally at any high rate of speed.
