Location: Austin, TX
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: The object changed color
Approximate 6:55 pm, while driving northbound on Westgate Blvd from Davis Rd, my family and I saw a red/orange flaming large object in night sky floating/hovering slowly from east to the west direction. It was hovering rather low, and we were able tell it was not a plane. I stopped the car on a median by Bryonhall Dr. The object was clearly parallel to our left side. I had the windows down and the moon roof open. We noticed the object was flame like in structure, it then slowly turned slightly southbound and appeared to be rotating then disappeared. We tried to take video and pictures with our cellphones, but it images are not clear.
