Location: Talihina, OK
Shape: Fireball
Duration:~10 minutes
Ascending fireball from Buffalo Mountain.

Line of sight was south near high school looking northwest. One single fireball rose vertically from the summit of Buffalo Mtn. to approximately 45 degrees against a mostly clear sky. Hovering for approximately 3 minutes, it began to move in a straight line toward the northeast. It appeared to be traveling at a speed unlikely for conventional aircraft. Within several minutes it had moved completely out of sight.

Not more than 2 minutes later, a nearly silent helicopter, traveling at tree level from the east quickly disappeared at the base of Buffalo Mtn. Observer was approximately 4 miles from the mountain. It should be noted that the strangeness of the object coming out of the mountain was further magnified by the observation of the helicopter traveling toward the sighting in what the observer describes as "stealth mode".
