At about 10:45pm on Saturday July 5th at the corner of Atherton and Center roads we saw a ball of fire with a glow around it about 100 to 200 yards above us not moving. It then slowly drifted east then shifted quickly southwest. It stopped for a minute then quickly rose up into the atmosphere until it looked like a bright star. It then started moving North until it disappeared as it approached the Big Dipper.
