Shape: Unknown
Duration: 4 minutes
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Object falling through earths atomsphere with large trail of orange behind it.

I was driving along Hwy 8 heading West. I was just about to Potosi, MO when I spotted something heading toward earth with a huge orage streak behind it. At first I thought it was a jet, but it was too large to be a jet. It seemed to be a black object with a huge amount of flames trailing behind it. It was heading South. I watched it for a good 4 minutes before I lost sight of it behind a very big group of clouds. I was looking for it again and I caught sight of it as I passed by where I thought I might see it. Noone else on the road seemed to notice it.
