Location: Mt. Airy, MD
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes
Large circular orange fireball hazed with black.

Round large orange and black shaped ball that was in the same spot for two to three minutes. Ran inside and got my camera and took a picture from the deck. Went to the ground to take a second picture and it disappeared into thin air. It was almost see through but bright and vibrant with a black haze covering it. Too big to be a blood moon or planet.
