Sighting Details

I was outside smoking a cigarette with my wife after dinner. The brightness of the object caught my attention, then the very low altitude and very fast velocity. The object was devoid of any sound - completely silent. It was an orange-yellow color. There were no strobes, no aircraft marking lights, going at an incredible speed, yet there was no trail of light. The object went completely dark. I stood up hoping to catch a view of where it would be if it reappeared in the same direction of travel, and at the last 2 seconds of view, it lit up again with the same exact color. I reported the sighting to the 193 Special Operations Wing at HIA - Harrisburg International Airport - due to the fact that I was concerned about the potential for an accident with other aircraft -- about 1 hour later. It took me a long time to decide that I should report it to somebody. They were very cordial and took down my witnessed event. They suggested that I report it to my local LEOs, which we both chuckled at and I politely declined. I'm contacting your organization because I feel that this event should also be documented with you. It's almost been a week now & I've concluded that even though it demonstrated many characteristics of a meteorite, there are just a few too many that force me to seriously doubt that it was merely only a space-rock. Please, contact me so that I can clarify what I witnessed and why I have such reservations about this being nothing more than another meteorite.
