Golden Ball in SKy

At your prompting on Coast to Coast this evening, I will report what I saw.

I was in Irvine, CA, visiting my sister and brother-in-law. We were having a lovely evening and playing cards and had not decided to go watch fireworks. When the fireworks began, we decided to take a break and hustled so we would be able to see them.

I was in the back seat of the car and looking out what I believe to be toward the northwest. I saw a golden globe hovering in the sky, not very high but not low either, like the height of fireworks. I asked if the fireworks were over that way. They were not in that direction but in the opposite direction.

I looked and saw it again. I mentioned to them that I think I was seeing a UFO but since it was 4th of July, I chalked it up to possible fireworks. I did mention it again on the way home it had left an impression.

It was gold, not bright gold but pale yet had a definite brightness that seemed to be contained in some way. I had some sense that it may have been spinning. I felt it had some purpose and that it was doing something. It continued to be on the back of my mind throughout the evening.
