Several years ago, in the evening of a summer's day my Family and I spotted an odd object in the Western Sky. It was falling, and appeared to be on
fire. A closer look with some binoculars revealed that it was indeed falling and had flames trailing behind it. It was dark brown in the center,
encased in orange flames, then encased in another layer of yellow flames. After several minutes of observing, we noticed the sun glint off of what
appeared to be an aircraft, shortly followed by another. There were also contrails behind these aircraft, and they were moving quite fast. After a
few more minutes, the object disappeared under the Horizon. I think it was probably some Space Debris. If it's of any use, I am in the 'thumb' of
Michigan on the Eastern side close to Lake Huron.
What was it that I saw??? Falling space debris, maybe a downed satellite? Or, was it something extraterrestrial? I do, however, doubt the latter. If
there is any other information that would be helpful, please let me know, and I will post it.
