Location: Stratford, CT
Duration: 2 seconds
|In Stratford, facing west.
Sky cloudless, no wind.
About 30 degrees above horizon a fast skimming yellow fireball that traveled about 20 degrees from south to north by northwest on a straight path above horizon line.
Have previously observed various meteors/bolides, but this object was nothing like them: No trail or scattering of light; was a discrete yellow glow resembling a teardrop shaped bulb inwardly lit.
Streaked swiftly (no sound), with a slight declination to its path just before it simply went out - no fading.
I would not ordinarily bother to clutter this website with what I considered a bolide or yet another firework/Chinese lantern misperception, but this seemed genuinely unusual.
