National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report

Reported: 7/31/2015 6:45:57 PM 18:45
Posted: 8/6/2015
Location: Auburn, NY
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 30 seconds
Orange flaming ball of fire, flying west to east, with no sound or navigation lights.

I first observed an orange flaming light rising in the western sky. The object was in the shape of a ball of flame.

It continued in a easterly direction and continued to accelerate in a straight path. At times the clouds would obscure the light. There was no sound or navigation lights.

The flame eventually faded but a dark object could still be seen flying to the horizon in Eastern sky. Still no navigation lights could be seen.

I am a police officer and would not have posted this sighting unless I thought to be unusual and difficult to explain.
