Orange comet shaped fireball changing into just fireball rapidly climbing. Sighted near Bristol Motor Speedway.Sighted in moving car. 3 miles from race track (Springfield Acres subdivision). Looked like a fireball at first. Orange ball with an orange ice cream cone tail coming to a point. Out of car it had turned into just a large orange ball moving rapidly North North East. Looked like a jet plane at night except light size was much bigger, at least 5 times bigger, and orange like a camp fire flame. Went behind clouds. At first sight in the car I though it might be a hot air balloon. Out of car I thought it might be a rocket or a jet plane on fire because it was moving so fast. Shrunk quickly in size but not in intensity. No sound. Neighbors weren't out so no one around me had noticed.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information. PD))
