Woman Sees "Saucer Shaped" Fireball Object in Night Sky

Date of Sighting: November 5, 2008
Time of Sighting: 6:30 PM EST
Date Sighting Reported: November 5, 2008
Duration of Sighting: 25 Minutes
Location of Sighting: Niagara Falls, New York
Latitude: 43.1 Degrees North
Longitude: 79.14 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Skies Were Clear. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were Calm.

Description: Yes, hello this evening I went outside to put my goat away and I looked up in the sky. I saw a fireball looking object that looked like a large star only it was orange. AS I WATCHED IT SLOWLY MOVE ACROSS the sky I went into the house and told my family. Then I watched it through a telescope for about 25 minutes until I COULD NOT SEE IT ANYMORE. Through the telescope I could see 5 lights 2 on each side and a brighter one in the middle which to me mean 't it was a saucer shape. It went off towards Welland, Ontario (towards Southwest) and then I could not see it anymore.

Comments: A description of a fireball that is saucer shaped is quite unusual and one that I have never investigated. The witness made this determination through a telescope. It sounds like that the object was the size of a large star to the naked eye. Her description does not fit a satellite, meteor, or other celestial object. Given available information I don't know what was sighted. I have requested more information from the witness. Updates will be posted.
