Location: Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 minutes
Orange "fireball" colored light no noise moving W to E South of FLL

Looking south from Ft Lauderdale in the direction of FLL I noticed the light because of the dark orange "fire" looking color. After focusing on on it, I can describe that it looked like the upper part of it was more white in color and was shaped like a triangle or jib sail and was a darker "fire" looking color towards the center.

At first it appeared to be moving North but as it got closer, it seems, it was moving pretty much due east. The object light was pulsating in a random pattern like a fire would do. As it moved west it resembled what a rocket looks like traveling away from. The speed seemed to be no more than what a typical airliner travels. There was no trail and never any noise that I could hear.

I have no way to tell the distance from my vantage. I can say that I could never get a defined shape as it was a bit fuzzy looking. I did take two photos though.
