Reported: 9/27/2015 11:33:46 PM 23:33
Posted: 9/29/2015
Location: Christopher, IL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2-3 minutes
Triangular orange fireball moved vertical 1/4 mi, then horizontally several miles, until disappearing.

I thought I saw fireworks in the distance, but orange fireball kept rising and moved toward me and across the sky, directly overhead from me, and my house and disappeared past the tree line. It appeared to be 1/8-1/4 mi overhead, silent, well-lit orange triangle moving 80-100 mph. I'm a 54 yr. old male.
