I didn't see it early on, got a phone call and went out to look. I saw what looked mostly like a very large fireball (reminiscent of the firefalls in Yosemite in the days of yore). It kept moving southward, then turned south east and descended into the horizon. I don't know exact time but the Olympic games were on the Japanese skater who won gold and was skating when I came back in from outside. Sometime after 9 to 9:20 pm). The shape was mostly round, very large, bright orange, looked like a fireball. The fireball seemed to have motion within itself. It kept going away from where I was standing, as it moved southeastward and descended as on a path into the horizon. (Like the sun setting, only it moved much faster than a sunset).
My feelings/reaction: Well, it's as I've been seeing now since we moved here to AZ in 2009. The Phoenix night sky has lots of peculiar lights that definitely are not stars, planets, comets, airplanes or weather balloons. So -- I'm mostly curious what they are.
