Shape: Circle
Duration:2 minutes
My girlfriend & I were taking a walk at our home in Cape Coral, FL, around 9:15pm/21:15 on 7-8-2015, and we noticed a bright orange/amber ball of light that was traveling in a SW direction. It was a cloudy night and we were not able to see any clear details, only a glow.

We heard a humming sound, but we are not sure if that could have been from some other planes that could have been in the area, it was a cloudy night and visibility was low.

The ball/circle of light then went behind some low clouds and stopped for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Then it started traveling East. It bounced around in the sky, kind of like when someone plays with a Spin Top, we thought the reason for this was because the clouds were distorting our view.

The light then dimmed out and faded away. We looked online for any other sightings of this light and did not find any. There was a smaller plane that was flying close to the ball of light that was traveling in a N/NW direction.

We did notice that for the past few years there have been a number of sightings in this same area. We were not able to take a pic or video, but the pics and videos of people that have did record past events had taken pictures of lights that were similar to the one we noticed during our event.
