Witnessed orange orb over a light pole across the street. Orb moved over a neighbors house.

The kids and I saw a UFO tonight.

Below is the report from my daughter: Just got out of Jeep on curb, talked with name removed and turned around to see a bright orange light in the sky. It was moving fast, looked to have been relatively low due to lack of light distortion. from the west to an almost south-east heading, where it seemed to fade, either as it got farther, or dimmed.

This is the other daughter's report: I was outside with name removed when she told me that she saw something at around 9:35 tonight. We had just gotten home from seeing name removed, and were about ready to walk in the doorway. After she hollered for my attention, I noticed that there was an orange orb above our neighbors' house. I ran in for my camera, got you, and began taking pictures. And as we observed, it moved west with us and name removed following both name removed and I and we observed it until it was no longer in our sight.

Here is what I saw: An amber orange object hovering in the northeast sky. The object was a solid orange seemed to have two points of light one above and below the object. I think this could have been caused due to the brightness of the light as once the object started moving the point of light faded away.

I observed object for about 1 minute before it started moving slowly in a northeast direction before fading from sight.

NOTE: I could not see individual lights on the object, but I could see them in the enclosed photo. I have noted this in the characteristics section of this report.

There were three witnesses to this sighting that occurred around 9:40 p.m.

Camera: Kodak Easy Share Z5010 was used to take the enclosed photo. The image was cropped with Pixelmator. An uncropped image is available.
