Location: Wesley Chapel, FL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:90 seconds
An amber colored light appeared on the horizon and moved slowly, in a very straight line, East to West.

Seen from my backyard, while watching new year's fireworks. An amber colored light appeared on the horizon and moved towards us, until it was directly overhead (my house obscured the view after that). It moved slowly, in a very straight line, East to West. At its closest, I viewed it through binoculars and could only see a flickering amber light (almost like fire). There were no blinking lights to indicate it was a commercial aircraft. The speed was similar to that of a commercial jet, but the light was far too large for a plane at that height. It did not seem to make any sound.
