Location: Round Rock, TX
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 5 minutes
Orange fireball with two, distinct "wings" reaching back behind it.

My son was taking out the trash and came running in to say there was a strange fireball thing in the sky with two ends.

I went out to take a look, then rushed in to grab my Nikkon 35mm film camera and attached the zoom lens on it for a better look. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the camera to focus on it as it was moving, in order to take a picture.

What it looked like throught the lens was a ball of fire with back "wings." I would say the shape almost resembled a large plane completely engulfed in flames with no back half, only the front through the wings except the wings reached back behind. Through the lens, there was no mistaking the orange glow and flames.

Considering its size with the naked eye it had to be comparable to a 747, at least. It continued on northward until it was out of sight.
