Orb and shooting star in Massillon Ohio with video link.

While riding my bicycle along the towpath in Massillon, Ohio, August 25, 2014, at 20:35, I witnessed what at first looked like an orange fireball to the east moving north. The object glowed and seemingly pulsed for a few moments but then went black. It was still visible, so I continued to watch.

After a few minutes it started glowing again and then went black again. Soon after that, I lost sight of the object, but curiously what looked shooting star flew in the direction of where the object had been.

About 10 minutes later, as I approached my home, I witnessed another object that was bright white in color flying slowly but somewhat erratically, again in the eastern sky. I lost track of this object quickly because of tree cover.

Here is a link to the video of the first object that I captured on my iPhone 5. Unfortunately I stopped filming before the shooting star appeared.
