Report of fire ball hovering above a city street.

I was in the passenger seat of my mothers car, she was driving. We were about 20 feet from an intersection when we both saw a ball of fire. It wasn't moving. It was just hovering there. My mother and I both saw it at the same time, but said nothing to each-other.

As soon as we passed it, we both looked at each other and said; "Did you just see that?" I turned around quick and couldn't see anything. We made a u-turn and drove through the exact area that we saw it. It wasn't there.

This happened about 15 years ago. I was fourteen years old and my mother was 43. The area in which it happened was a normal city street. It wasn't above in the clouds, afar. It was in the midst of where we were. I could have thrown a rock at it. It was round. The colors where orange, red, and yellow. We both saw it for at least 30 seconds.

I was listening to Coast To Coast and was amazed at the description of the fire ball. So I thought I would write in and give my report.

I sent some images to your email address. They are a digital rendering of what we saw and it's size.
