Fireball/Orb over Vermont 8/19/2012About 8:20pm, I was outside standing in the street speaking to my neighbor when my son said "what is that in the sky?" We looked up and right above us was a fireball moving north at a high rate of speed. The sphere/fireball had a glow around it that was white. It did not make any sound whatsoever. At this point both of my neighbor's kids as well as my wife and other child were called out to observe this. My neighbor started to video record it with his cell phone. The quality is not bad considering it was a phone. We watched it continue north then it changed appearance and became a black orb in the sky, as if it were able to turn its lighting source off. At this point we observed it sharply turn to the west and we continued watching until it was out of our sight due to trees and roof lines. About two to three minutes passed from the time it was first observed by my son and the time all of us lost it in our view as a black round orb. Moments after we! lost sight I noticed a commercial jet passing overhead traveling east. This is a typical international route so the plane was at cruising altitude and you could hear the engines, which it very normal and occurs about twice an hour at our location. Clearly this fireball/orb was not a commercial aircraft as it was at least ten times brighter, traveling much faster than a typical aircraft and much higher in altitude without any sound.
