Oct. 3, 2010 Report Filing:

On the evening of July 4, 2010 at dusk, I was traveling north on a rural road west of Fort Worth, TX. Fireworks had begun in the distance; however over an unpopulated area, a bright glow was evident. Note that it was just beginning to be dark and landmarks were visible.

The object was North West of my position; about 70 degrees above the horizon. The color was bright red along the color of a road flare. The size I estimate was close to the size of a van or small moving truck. The object was round in shape and a constant glow that was very visible. I do not believe it to be a firework product since no others were seen anywhere or anytime during the 4th.

The object was stationary for 30 to 45 seconds and went out instantly. No smoke was observed in the area of the sighting. I was shocked to read about this in several publications and decided to file this report. I cannot identify the origin of the object but I will confess it struck me oddly at the time; and to this day.

Please note I am very sincere about this happening since it occurred near a Navy Air Base.
