RemarksThis object came in in two parts. The first like any other typical meteor, bright, fast, and gone. After we all saw it go out I looked back the direction it came from (N/W) and another object coming not as fast but slowing rapidly and glowing in a shimmering orange followed the same path and eventually burned out. What was amazing was the duration. 15 to 20 seconds for the second object. I'm guessing it was space junk returning to earth.
