Location: Longwood, FL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 minutes
I was looking out sliding glass door to the north when I saw one red light at about a 45 to 60 degree angle to the horizon in the sky. It was not moving. It was not fireworks.

It was stationary looking about the size of a large star.

I called to my husband who also saw it. He ran to get binoculars and went outside, but he could not see it from the front of the house.

A small plane flew toward it from south to north seemingly in a direct path to the light.

As the plane got closer to the light it appeared that the plane was actually higher than the light. As the plane appeared to move closer to it the light faded and disappeared.

Just a few minutes later a helicopter flew north to south lower than where the light and plane had been.
