Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 seconds
Fireball with flaming tail shooting across mid-sky.

We were walking near the WA Correction Center, facing about 70* E, with a full moon at mid-sky just to our right. At the same level as the moon, from left to right a large fireball with a flaming tail went across the sky. The flaming tail kept breaking apart. The fireball and tail were bright orange with a bright yellow ring around the fireball. We thought it might be a satellite breaking apart in the atmosphere.
