Shape: Sphere
Duration:3 seconds
Shooting sphere

Saw streak that quickly slowed down to reveal perfect sphere. Slowing also changed colour from white orange streak to orange red sphere. Thought it might drop from sky, but disappeared behind tree line.

Object was low and close and travelled at improbable trajectory (perfectly horizontal) - 45 degrees off the ground and seemingly close mile or less away. Object was clear, outline was crisp.

So in summary, thought I was seeing a horizontal shooting star that slowed down to reveal sphere - completely silent.
