Location: Vero Beach, FL
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 90 seconds
A single fireball traveling rather quickly from southeast to northwest where it disappeared into the clouds.

I was walking my dog at approximately 9:30 p.m. this evening. I was talking to my neighbor on the phone. I was walking east and saw a light in the sky. The light looked orange, but thought maybe it was just a plane and because of the clouds appeared orange. The closer it came, it appeared to be fire.

I told my neighbor to hurry and come outside and see what I was seeing. I was scared for a moment, thinking it was a plane on fire about to crash. When it went over us, it appeared to be a ball of flames. I could actually see what appeared to be flames. It was mostly orange, a lighter color of orange.

It is hard to determine the shape, but if I had to choose, I would say round. The fireball traveled to the northwest fairly quickly. I would say was traveling faster than I see most small planes travel, and seemed to just disappear.

The background was scattered clouds till heading towards the west where it became very cloudy. I also heard no noise whatsoever.
