Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
Orange and red circular fireball object traveling north about Interstate US Route 26.

I was driving south on US Route 26, nearing exit 19, when I noticed a circular orange ball in the sky, traveling northeast. It flew directly over me while I was traveling on the interstate.

At first I was not concerned about the sitting, but a truck was pulled off onto the right median and they were looking up and over there shoulder and pointing at the object.

I veered off the interstate and started driving north on North Roan Street. The object appeared to flash red at times, but this was not the same red light that flashes on an airplane. It seemed to be circling back south.

I proceeded to my destination, and watched as the fireball moved out of site to the north. I probably wouldn't have posted this if it wasn't for the truck that was parked on the median also looking at the same object.

I would estimate that it was two to five thousand feet in the air and had no sound at all.
