Fireball over state highway 318 NY.

I was driving my buddy home last night and we were traveling on state rt. 318 heading eastward. We happened to look up in the sky ahead of the car and we noticed what looked like an airplane on fire.

As we drew closer to it, it appeared to be an orange glowing ball.

I slowed down to about 20 mph and neither of us heard anything other than my car's engine and the sound of the tires on the road. It just seemed to hover over that spot and was about 200-300 yards up from the ground, which would've made it a very low-flying plane.

No noise, no exhaust could be seen or heard. My buddy continued to look out the windows as we passed it. He explained to me that it looked like it was following us.

He no sooner got that out of his mouth and then said that it had grown dim and then suddenly, it flashed out like a light switch.

There were other cars on the road at the time, so I imagine others had to have seen this too!
