Single Fireball spotted over Silicon Valley.

Sitting on the patio my friend pointed out a ball of fire moving horizontally across the evening sky.

At first I took it to be a hot air balloon, as it was at about the right height in the sky and size.

It began to pick up speed, flying in a southeastern direction and ascending rapidly.

Before long it flickered and faded out of sight and into the stars.
