Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 minutes
I saw what looked like the only cloud in the sky. It was a small smudge. The sun was rising from behind the mountains so that little speck of a clout was shining super bright in the sky.

I train my eyes on the freeway and when I looked back I appeared as if the atmosphere had changed this illuminous cloud, the bottom had fallen down and it was now elongated top to bottom. I look back a third time and it was even longer but a round circle was there ad I'd an explosion took place below the original cloud/light. As the newly formed bottom parts disappeared the original cloud remained but a small star was under it where the other mass had been. Then the star slowly descended behind the Superstition Mountains while the Sun in view thru my same wins hill (sic. windshield??) kept rising up. Shouldn't the star and the sun both have risen upwards? Yes, if it was a star.
