Wilkes-Barre, PA

Sighted on Friday 19. May 2017

Shape: Fireball | Duration: 2 minutes

On my way to McDonald's up near the mall, my wife and I saw an orange fireball going across the sky in a straight line. It was too fast to be a Chinese lantern and too slow to be a meteor. Quite a sight, it looked like a flame, morphing the way flames do in the wind. Based on the location I'm sure hundreds of other people saw it, just a matter of time before someone else reports this as well. Just wanted to document the sighting.
