|Glowing large orange ball in Alabama sky August, 1949.
On a Saturday night of the summer of 1949 (It would have been between July 16th and the beginning of September), my boyfriend and I (aged fifteen) were "smooching" in a deserted ball field in Tarrant City, AL, when we spied a glowing orange ball low in the sky.
To our naked eye, it was about the size of two full moons. It moved slowly around a small area for about ten minutes, and then vanished.
We were terrified, but we didn’t tell anyone what we’d seen, because we weren’t supposed to be alone in the ball field.
Of course over the years, we shared the story, but I decided it’s time to make an official report.
