Tramore (Ireland)

Sighted on Saturday 03. January 2009
Reported on
Shape: Fireball | Duration: About 5 mins

Variable fireball that stopped and hovered then flew away and faded awayIt looked like a plane on fire at first but it would stop in 1 possition for to long to be. I taped a video on my phone but it is of bad quality. It was bright in the sky, even with cloud cover, for about 5 minutes.It started high in the sky then moved in a what can be judged as diagonal downward left motion as I was facing NW direction it then hovered and this the part I got on video then as it faded it moved back up diagonally right in the direction it had come from.It's light intensity varied at irregular intervals like a fire ball.
