Nähty Leppävirralla. Ensin kirkas valopallo, joka muuttui punaiseksi. Lähti kaartamaan itään päin ja jätti pitkän punaoranssina hehkuvan hännän perässään. Pallo (kivi) kipinöi samalla pienentyen kunnes hajosi/ katosi. Häntä näkyi hetken vielä pallon (kiven) katoamisen jälkeen. En kuullut ääntä mutta oli suhteellisen pitkä kestoinen ilmiö.
