Duration:7-8 min
i saw an orange sphere in the sky about quarter the size of a full moon, it looked like fire glowing inside a ball.

To whom it may concern, On the evening of Sept 19th 2011at about 8:45-9:00 pm I was driving home and noticed an orange ball/sphere in the sky.

I was heading north and only a few min away from my house. At first it didn’t look like it was moving, as I kept driving north I tried to keep my eye on it, it was moving pretty fast though because by the time I got home which was about the equivalent of 2 city blocks it was already in the south end of the sky and appeared to be a little smaller than when I originally saw it.

The movement it made was forward but in small increments up and then down, it never moved from side to side and it was way too large to be a plane, I would say it was about the size of a full moon quartered.

When I got out of my car I immediately looked for it, at the same time I was getting out of my car my neighbors were getting into their car. I brought it to their attention; I asked “what is that?” “Do you see that up there?” I have seen the man only a few times as they just moved in a few weeks ago and I had never spoken to them before.

At first they looked at me like if I was not all there, but then when they saw it also we were all in awe, and just watched it until it disappeared in the sky going south.

It was like nothing I have ever seen before and I had no doubt whatsoever this was a true UFO. It was too large to be a plane and the movement was different. It didn’t have a haze around it nor did it have a “tail”.

I have seen other strange lights in the sky, I was never really sure of what they were but they could always be explained away. This one caught my eye because of the size and the color. Very intense orange like a fire contained in a ball.

I have to say it left me feeling “invaded” somehow, not as safe as I had felt before.

I always believed we are not alone on this planet but I NEVER thought I would ever see something that would seal it for me.

When it finally disappeared my neighbors thanked me for bringing it to their attention, I’m just glad I wasn’t the only one who saw it, I’m glad there were other witnesses. I know no one would believe me if it was just me but the fact that there were 2 other people there and the fact that I didn’t know them prior, made me feel better about the sighting.

Thank you for your time
