Duration:1 minute
A bright orange fireball rose up slowly from behind the tree line and then swiftly moved to the right and vanished.

While driving down the highway last night, a single bright orange fireball arose vertically over the tree line in the horizon. It glowed brighter and brighter and seemed to increase in size. Once it reached the middle of the sky it began swiftly moving to the right and vanished. It was me, my brother, and my sister. We could not believe our eyes. We could not figure out what it was. As soon as it appeared, it vanished. It left an eerie silence in its wake.

Later that night, after I went to bed, I vaguely recall waking up and seeing crazy lights flashing in my window and a hearing a strange rumbling noise. I tried to fully wake up but I couldn’t, it was like I was stuck in a haze. I finally snapped out of the “haze” when my dog jumped on my bed and started wining. I assumed there was a thunderstorm (I thought what I had experienced was lightening and thunder and my dog only whines during storms) but when I checked the weather it was crystal clear.
