Single bright orange sphere/orb seen in Port Dover, Ontario

At approximately 9:34 p.m., on August 17, 2013, five witnesses were sitting by a campfire in backyard in Port Dover, Ontario. While looking at the stars, one of the witnesses said “What is that coming there now?” and everyone proceeded to look at what appeared to be a substantially bright orange light approaching, perhaps 500ft to a 1000ft of altitude. The object was heading West and making no sound. It was also heading at a constantly velocity – approximately 200-300 knots.

The object was fairly large, larger and brighter than anything else in the sky. Size is unknown because the altitude was unknown.

As the single, bright orange object passed overhead, it began to climb in altitude as it moved away at a substantial velocity – perhaps the velocity that a single engine plane would travel. At no point was any sound heard.

The object was also looked at through the binoculars. It appeared to be a bright orange glowing orb, perhaps in two sections. A photograph was finally taken at the object began to move off.
