Shape of objects: Fiery ball breaking apart.
Full Description of event/sighting: At approx: 1:25 am on the morning of Saturday August 23, 2008, I was observing the moon through my telescope, just past the city limits towards Harmony. A bright fiery object caught my eye about 35 degrees from the ground. It's heading was from west to east, and appeared to travel in a straight line. This object was round, burning, trailing black smoke and looked like it was breaking up like when a cutting torch ember hits the ground. I watched the object for approx: 8-10 seconds (which would be incredible for a meteor) It certainly is not like any meteor I have ever seen. It is hard to put an altitude on this object at night, but I clearly could see black smoke trailing around and behind it. At arms length it was an inch in size (between finger measurement) I had a clear view of it until I lost sight because of a forest in which is a mile away. I'm not sure I can say what it was, but I takes the cake on the coolest thing I have seen in the heavens.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
