Maine Feb. 2019 sighting: fireball with smoke, extinguishes itself to reveal metallic craft…

I got this sighting from Nuforc.
Interesting recent sighting in Maine who previously has seen two ufo sightings as well. Witness is a former Law Enforcement Intelligence Analyst, who was driving home one night from takeout when they saw a large amount of smoke in the sky, which included a fireball with smoke trail. The witness continued to drive towards the object.
The witness thought about taking a video but could not do so and drive at the same time unfortunately.
Witness was then able to clearly see the object:
Size was estimated to be about the size of a football field.
Once I passed by Sabattus Lake (on my left), I could clearly see the object in front of me, starting to move towards my right. The area is rural and while Route 126 is a main road, traffic only travels at 45-50 mph within that stretch. When I approached my road on the right, I could see the orange ball burn out as the object started slowing down, almost as if it came to a stop and leveled out. It hovered in place for the better part of 30-45 seconds and no longer had a trail of smoke behind it. I immediately pulled over and threw my car in park! The object was a gray elongated, oval shaped craft of some sort. No wings, like an airplane. Way too long to be a helicopter and I saw no propellers or movement of any sort. On estimate I would say possibly the size of a football field and shiny metallic. It was still too high to see any clear small characteristics such as windows and/or doors. All I could see was a huge metallic form hovering above the field. There were no lights visible. I will say that I drive with my eyeglasses on, so I was looking at the object/craft with 20/20 vision. When I had pulled over, several other vehicles were doing the same (on both sides of the road). I once again grabbed my phone to take a video, but I didn’t want to look away for fear that I would miss something! A car that pulled in behind me had a man jumping out of the driver’s seat, yelling at a female in the passenger seat to get her phone and take a video. I was trying to do the same, but I couldn’t open my camera fast enough. With my window unrolled, I can only estimate that it hovered about the level that our Life Flight helicopter flies by at. (Slightly above tree-top level.) It was less than ¼ of a mile away from me, hovering what seemed like forever until it tipped upward slightly on the right and took off diagonally. It went fast to the right, stopped and then straight up and disappeared from sight.
The witness mentioned they were clearly in awe of what they were seeing here.
One the evening news the witness said there was a report of helicopters and aircraft in the area for a “training mission,” but the witness was not accepting this explanation.
I was in awe! When I looked around at the other vehicles across the road from me, people were still looking and searching the sky. I drove off leaving roughly 6-10 other vehicles still on the side of the road. With all that said, I will say that the past two weeks have been very eventful in the skies around here. We have a hot tub and go out nightly, under the stars. We have had more helicopters and low-flying planes in this area (nightly) than EVER in the past 45 years that I’ve lived here. There was a report on the evening news saying that all the helicopters/aircraft were here for a “training mission”, but I don’t buy it! There were too many people that saw the craft that I saw. It’s too coincidental to now have them conduct a “mid-winter training” in our rural area after such an event. Something is out there and it was clearly in trouble, but somehow it corrected itself, extinguished itself, even, and took off again. I can’t explain it, but I do know that there have been several sightings around Sabattus Mountain over the years. I will try to find some of the newspaper articles and send them your way! If I could be of any further help, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
