Shape: Fireball
Duration:60 seconds
I was driving a big transit passenger bus southbound on Route 9 in a rural farm area with low lying corn fields and no bright street lights ...off in the southern sky moving towards me was a bright orange flaming object ..it was moving south to north, which meant it would pass directly over me ...as it got closer, I could see that it was low flying on an even flight path of around maybe 2 thousand feet ..the flames surrounding the object were similar to a candle flame dancing and moving which concealed the object inside the flames ...inside the flames it appeared to be a wedge shape object that was very bright whitish in color ...this passed directly over me as I drove under it, while having a perfect view out of the big front windshield ...it was slow moving and remained on a steady path of flight ..the flames seemed to be a characteristic of the craft, not a fire caused by accident or entering atmosphere ..these fireball craft seem to have fire enveloping ! them even when flying low and slow.
