Round Ball of light emitting "sparks"/light hovering in Orlando, Florida.

On August 7th, 2013 in Orlando, Fl, I was swimming at twilight around 8:30 pm and a bright, round object captured my sensory perception due to the amount of light that was emanating from it.

It had a trail of smoke from beneath as if it was launched from the ground, but it was hovering for a few minutes and spark-like lights were falling from it toward the earth.

Three other people responded to my statement of “What is that?” and all saw the object as well.

I did not have a recording device nor camera and have never considered UFO’s before. I am a neutral observer.

I do live near Cape Canaveral so that came to my mind, however this object was hovering still for quite a while and was not directly above the Cape.

((NUFORC Note: A launch of a Delta IV rocket from Cape Canaveral occurred at 20:29 hrs. on this date. PD))
