RemarksI saw a flaming ball that streaked across the sky from north to south- it looked like a yellow ball with an orange glow. It was followed by a yellow tail. I thought it was the biggest, brightest shooting star I had ever seen, then, due to it's size, thought it was a small airplane that was crashing. It suddenly disappeared. There was no sound, so I knew it wasn't a plane crash.
