RemarksLooked like a ball of paper on fire (orange with a slight blue hue)shooting across the path of an airliner. The trail was a yellowish streak but very quickly disolved. The fireball was quickly dissapeared and no trail of smoke . It reminded me of a large missile. But no smoke. Just an orange ball of fire .I thought it was space junk.(sattelite re-entry)
