Location: Boca Raton, FL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 minutes
Silent fireball like object slowy flew across sky, then darted off to the east, like a shooting star, leaving our atmosphere.

I was out walking my dogs and saw what I first thought was a shooting star. But, I quickly noticed it wasn’t, because it was moving too slow.

For a moment I saw a slight streak of light behind it (similar to a streak of light like a shooting star ). It at first looked like it was coming directly towards me.

It was, at first, traveling in a southern direction. Then seemed to take an eastern direction.

The moon was behind me. It was much, much smaller than the moon. IT WAS COMPLETELY SILENT. It probably was going about the speed a small airplane cruising (not very fast).

It was a small ball, a firey looking light. I watched it cruise by in the sky for about 1 ½ minutes when it suddenly took off in a eastern direction. Now I could best describe it a shooting star leaving our atmosphere… not entering it. It left rising in altitude and streaked off to the east. I was gone in less than a second. Never making a noise.
