Location: Richfield, UT
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
I saw a fireball in the sky moving too slow to be a meteor

While driving home, a fire ball came into my line of vision over the top of my truck. It was traveling east to west, and dissappeared over the mountain. My first impression was a plane on fire, but this object had a distinct ball shape. It was traveling too slow for a meteor. There were Flames visible around the object. Just after the object dissappeared over the mountain, I saw a flash of light, but the local airport beacon light was on at the time so the reflection of that may have been what I saw.
