Location: Durham, NC
Shape: Sphere
Duration:5-6 seconds
Rapidly descending sparking fireball, seen over the course of several seconds

Driving home. Looking into the west/northwest sky. It was dark already,

I saw a rapidly descending object spherical in shape--it was yellow/orange and shot sparks 3-4 separate times as it was descending--then I lost sight of the object.

I was almost certain that something would have crashed or fallen from the sky and it would be on the news. I have seen nothing.

Other drivers on NC-147N seemed to see it too and hit their breaks-not finding any reports on the news or anything though.

It was definitely different from any meteor shower/aircraft/shooting star that I've observed before.
