Six people see an object change from glowing red to blinking aircraft to flaming blue meteor.

Three of us were at the house and the other four of us were in driving to Publix. I was in the back seat of the car and I saw it first (on the right side of the road).

It was a glowing red star with a curved glowing red tail. It looked stationary to me. I thought it was a neon sign or a reflection of one in the window. I don’t live there so I thought it could be something explainable. I stared at it for about 3 seconds before asking my friends if they could see the thing I was seeing. When they looked at it, the object began to move. The star in the front got smaller and the tail became straight and skinny (still glowing red).

Next, the object begins to turn and the red glow went out. It was dark out so we couldn’t see the object’s shape but we could see its lights. It had a big light at the front that looked like a dull glow to me. It could have been the glow from being heated. It also had a light at the end. It was a very small flashing red light. That’s when we realized that this is a UFO. The object was long and skinny judging by the placement of the lights. The object continues flying with the appearance of an elongated aircraft for about 5 seconds. (It’s now on the left side of the road and had made a complete U-turn.) Then, the object begins to light up again. It gets brighter and brighter and becomes engulfed in blue flames. It looks like a meteor now. It was still moving slowly. It appears as a slowly falling meteor for a little over 5 seconds before all lights go out and the object disappears completely.

Three people observed it while in the car. The driver only caught a glimpse of it. We are all college students from the ages of 18-20. I can’t speak for the three people who saw it at the house, but they had a completely clear view of the object. They were sitting outside around a fire when they saw it.
