Flying balloon of fire traveling east to west and suddenly turned due south and disappeared.

At first we thought it resembled a helicopter, because we are near NAS Jacksonville and the helicopters fly but we quickly realized we were wrong. We described it at the time as resembling a balloon on fire. It was probably several miles away. It was in the eastern sky and was moving toward the west quickly. As it got closer it really looked as if there was a large flame. We continued watching it quickly took a 90 degree turn to the south and disappeared.

I spoke with another neighbor on August 7, 2010 and brought up what we saw. She said she saw it too and didn't mention it because she thought it was a UFO and felt uncomfortable talking about it. That changed immediately when we brought up what we saw.
