Location: Lancaster, OH
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 minutes
Large fireball in the sky to the left of the sun, seemed to changed it's shape, and size.

On January 24, 2016, my mother and I were heading west on Fair Ave. when I noticed a single fireball in the sky. It was glowing orange but seemed to have changed its shape from a standard orb, to a multi-dimensional object. I followed the fireball for nearly 5 minutes, however it did not seem to be moving.

I took several photos to which you can clearly see the much larger and brighter sun in the sky to the right of the fireball. I was only able to see it while traveling on Fair Ave in the 5 minutes time frame I mentioned.

It was very unusual and a little scary.
