Posted: 10/11/2005
Location: Terre Haute, IN
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 3 min
Characteristics: The object changed color
As they got closer, they became a brighter orange. When they met, there was a huge burst of orange, like a fire in the sky.

Something orange caught my attention at about 9:30 pm. At first I thought it might be an airplane, but a few seconds later, I saw another small orange light headed toward the first. As the two got closer to eachother, they became brighter orange and cone shaped.

When the two met, there was a burst of very bright orange/red light, almost like a fire. The burst was large and lasted about one minute and then completely disappered. It wasn't like an airplane crash, there were no falling debris and there was no sound.
