Shape: Fireball
Duration:15 minutes
Fireball over Antioch California seen for 15-20 minutes travelling at varying speeds and making dramatic direction changes

I was driving eastbound on Hwy 4 on my home from work. As I approached my exit, I saw an orange "fireball" in the sky. It was moving unusually for any air plane. I watched it as I drove to my house, pulling over twice because it was changing direction suddenly.

When I arrived at my home, I called my son to come outside. When I showed it to him, he was speechless. We watched it for several minutes, now moving slowly north to south. It suddenly stopped. It stayed in one place for a good 5 minutes. I took a photo and video. Then it drifted slowly to the west. And then it disappeared but instantly reappeared far to the west within a second or two. Then it started moving south and we could no longer see it. We are both completely stunned by what we saw.

When I look at the enlarged photo, it boggles my mind. We could tell this thing appeared to be spinning and that is evident in the picture. I can also see what appear to be lights!
