    Today at 9:40 AM I spotted a fireball descending moving from North to south. It was visible for about 3 seconds. leaving an orange trail.
    One of my friends got a pic that I post here. anyone else see this object?

    I seen meteors. this was different.
    I am thinking a satellite or space junk.
    I don't think it's a controlled descent. The local news has not picked up on it.
    But it was a fascinating event.

    nope none..I asked around seems only 3 of my friends saw it I asked my pal who got the pic to take it to a local news station. I'm not surprised it not national. a event like this rarely makes national. seems this was,a blink and you miss it event. pity. because it was quite the sight

    Madison Wi where I live has a population of 255,000 I'm 2 hours away from Milwaukee to the east. Chicago is about 2 and a half away. I only can recall once a meteor making the news.
    and that was because thousands saw it with many videos. maybe it will pop up but I'm thinking if it does it may take a while to make the news.

    I'm just blown away that your friend managed to get a close-up pic of a fireball that only lasted for about three seconds - they must have reflexes like a rattlesnake!

    It probably was some kind of space junk...kinda scary that NORAD doesn't let us know when something like that is about to come down.

    I kind of assumed it was longer than 3 seconds, 15 or 20 seconds or more can go by quick when someone is hyped up...

    Living in Madison Wisconsin we have Tuax and the Dane County Airport. I am used to planes coming in and out.
    what I saw was an orange glowing object leaving a orange trail.
    Humanlord did suggest a reasonable explanation for what I saw and what my friend photographed. several factors give weight to the possibility.
    1. no news reports on the object.
    2. no reports on the UFO center or American meteor society
    as for the duration of the sighting it could have been longer but to me it happened quickly.
    The fact my friend photographed it.
    and also thought it was a meteor is key.
    so meteor satillte or just a plane that happened to catch the morning sun just right.
    All are reasonable and valid possibilities.
    All I know is I stand by what I saw.
    as for it's identity that remains to be figured out.
    Thats,why I posted it in an effort to understand what I saw. I am open to all possibilities.

    I'm having the pic looked at by a pro.
    the plane theory is strong now!

    hmmm that is indeed quite weird, @The shadow could your friend be pulling your leg?
    that would explain the contrail argument too

    well said the shadow!
    this is free speech and i have been in the UFO field in quite a while to know the prosaic explanations

    I will be watching tonight with my 11 year old! He loves this kind of thing!
    if the weather hold I should be able to see it.
    as for what I saw Jury is still out.
    I still think it was a meteor. But the airplane theory is a strong possibility
