Clearly visible fireball over hatfield pa

on a clear, cold night, I looked up and saw a bright yellow, orange fireball. It was low enough that I could clearly make out flames coming out of it in a downward direction. The best I could describe it, is a small, slow moving sun, about the size of a dime.

My immediate thought was a hot air balloon on fire, but soon realized that was not what I saw.

I had a full view of it for about 5 minutes. As it was nearly out of my field of view, it seemed to extinguish, and reappear.

I have pretty extensive experience from the Marines, of what is normal, and what isn't. This was certainly a technology that I have never been exposed to.
