Flame to red object that flew towards the moon.

At 11:26 p.m. June 23, 2013 I looked into the dark cloudless sky in front of my condo and saw a flame hovering above the treeline near Sancus Blvd. and Ficus Dr. The flame hovered for 90 seconds. Moving only slightly. I opened the door while still looking at the flame and told my boyfriend to come look at this thing in the sky. I looked in at him and said, "Come look!". He came over and looked at the flame in the sky and said, "We should take pictures of this.". So, I went in the house and grabbed my iPod. Came back outside and the flame had flown up higher in the pitch black sky. I took a picture of the object. Then, I decided to take a video. I could still see the object in the sky clearly with my eyes. However, in the video it just looks like a small red dot. I watched it go straight up into the sky and then head directly towards the moon. In my photo the object looks white and L or V shaped.

As for your request: The FAA said the wind velocity for my location last night at 11:26 p.m. was "I can't help you with that, Call the weather people." So, I called the NOAA and for Wind Velocity for my location at 11:26 p.m. last night and they said, "about 5 miles per hour".

He was rather rude.

I was looking up into the sky in a South East Direction at the 120 mark on a compass.
