Charsign Raymond, 39, of Clarkston, said he was visiting a friend west of downtown Stone Mountain when the friend's wife arrived home and announced there was something strange in the sky, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Tuesday.
Raymond said he used his video camera to capture video of the object, which appeared as a ball of fire falling toward the ground.
The DeKalb County Police Department said it received no reports about the mystery object.
