Location: Cape May, NJ
Shape: Sphere
Duration:10-12 minutes
My wife and I witnessed a large Orange lantern shaped ORB that was very bright and large in the night sky. It was low in the sky and passed very close to us and we could not identify it as normal. The object moved moderately fast in a straight path into the night sky until it was out of sight. It made no noise. It appeared that the object had flames inside the orb and was glowing. The object was in our field of view for 10-12 minutes. My wife and I both felt that our eyes hurt after viewing this object. There was a full moon on this night. I reported the sighting the following day to the Cape May police department. They claimed that no one else had called in. We were unable to video.
