Shape: Chevron
Duration:15 min
On May 10, 2002, viewed a bright orange, chevron shaped object in the western sky of Pine Island, Fl.

While watching Jupiter appear, we sat aView bright orange chevron shapped object with a bright glowing vortex. We observed it for 12-15 minutes. It was in the western sky near the horizon approximately between Mars and Mercury. It was visible by the naked eye and was very strong with binoculars. It seemed to be fading away from us and did not change direction. At one point the round bright orange vortex of the chevron flared stronger.
