Location: Madison, WI
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 00:00:04
Characteristics: The object left a trail
While walking easterly on a cold night, I saw this bright object moving from high in the southern sky, to medium low in the eastern sky.

It had a meteor-like fireball with glowing tail appearance that increased in size and brightness as it moved through the sky on a steady linear route.

It seemed to move slower than the usual misnamed "shooting star" of summers on the lake.

Tonight's version was pretty and significant, but it was not a dramatic night-sky event.
