Fireball UFO seen over Big Creek in Polk City, Iowa

My boyfriend and I were driving home from the Casey’s General Store in Polk City, Iowa, after buying some candy for a home movie.

As we crossed the bridge over Big Creek, we saw a floating orange spherical object out of the left (driver’s side window.) The object was like a fire or candle. It did not appear as hazy or with an aura around it though I wouldn’t say the sphere shaped light’s edges were extremely sharp.

It was over the lake, about a few hundred feet beyond the bridge and a few hundred feet higher in the air relative to us (on the bridge). It glowed brightly but not in a blinding way like the headlights of a car.

The object was moving horizontally and didn’t seem to be moving up or down. It glided in the opposite the direction we were heading. It moved smoothly and within the car I could not hear it making any noise.

Unfortunately we couldn’t pull over to get a longer look (we were driving on a fairly busy highway over a bridge.) When we were able to turn around we went back over the bridge but the object was no longer there.

It was dark out, 10: 36 pm.
