Bright light in sky captured on video across Florida

- People across Florida saw what appeared to be a large fireball lingering in the western sky Saturday night. 

Many recorded the slow-falling celestial object on their phones and shared the video with FOX 13, looking for guidance on what it might have been. 

FOX 13 Meteorologist Tyler Eliasen says it was possibly the setting sun hitting the contrail from a large jet just right.

Photographer Alec Paris captured still images of the fiery show, giving us a better look.
