|Red/Orange Orb seen in N/W Cape Coral on 3/10/15 that passed close to 2 aircraft.
Sitting out back in our pool cage that faces west we noticed a very bright Orange/Red round Orb was seen moving from south to north and going along the coast of Pine Island Sound.
There were two aircraft on final approach to SW FL International Airport that were headed SW, coming from the north along the gulf coast. The orb flew past them quite close and was at about the same altitude as the planes. When it went past the second plane the orb lowered its altitude from buzzing the first plane, which was at a bit higher altitude.
The orb then circled to the west and headed over Pine Island at about a 45 degree angle up and disappeared into some clouds. The speed of the orb was about two to three times that of the commercial aircraft. There were 3 of us that watched it and besides wondering what it was, we were wondering what was being said in the cockpits of the aircraft…
I tried to take a video, but the batteries were too low on my camera to use it.
