My fiance and i were sitting on our front porch which faces north. the video i recorded was time stamped 9:16 p.M. eastern time. my fiance saw it first and pointed it out to me and i started videotaping as quickly as i could. he noticed the glow out in the sky, north and slightly west of us and it descended slowly, almost gliding like, in an easterly direction. it was a large flaming object silently descending through the sky toward our airport that we live within a mile or two of. it disappeared into the trees and we couldn't see where it landed we don't know how far away it was or how big it was. to me it looked like a plane that was on fire, it kind of had the shape of a plane, was difficult to tell it was engulfed in flames and it descended silently. we felt kind of mystified. surprised, slightly astounded, shocked. we'd never seen anything like that before and we couldn't identify it.
