Duration:2 minutes
Bright white orb moving steadily cross the sky slowly until it swelled, retracted, and moved away at a high rate of speed.

On 10/4/15, at approximately 20:30 EST, a bright white orb moving to slow to be an aircraft was observed in the area. At first observation the object looked to be the ISS in orbit but as it moved closer to the area it became very obvious it was too low to be orbiting. The object was inside the atmosphere and much lower to ground.

The object made no sound. The object was observed to be twice the size of the ISS at closer range comparatively. The object was observed to be at a range of approximately 1/2 mile away and an approximate altitude of 3000 feet but no more than 4000 feet. The object was observe at an angle of approximately +40° to +42° traveling from the southwest at approximately 230° moving north at approximately 21°. These numbers are based on a positive upward bubble. The event could not be triangulated.

After 1 minute of straight steady movement in the sky toward the area it came into clear sight. The object covered the same distance moving away as it did coming toward the area. After it cleared the area moving away it maintained its steady speed and altitude for approximately 30 seconds. The event seemed to last less than 2 minutes.

As the object was moving away from the area it swelled, retracted, maneuvered and moved away at an extreme high rate of speed. The object left a short black streak in its wake before leaving the Earth's deep orbit. The object achieved greater than light speed due to an observable black streak or absence of light.

The event did not cause silence of animals nor insects. The event did not cause a feeling of emptiness or parole. Only the fiery spheres cause this type of event on the ground. Based on this observation, it was a different species than the red fiery orbs. The red fiery orbs move at an altitude of approximately 1000 to 2000 feet and much slower.

I have observed 4 of the red fiery orbs over the past 2 years. I only include that because you are most interested in the red fiery orbs. The silence on the ground and the feeling of emptiness and/or parole seems to be a natural defense. I have watched the trail of sightings of these red fiery orbs reported so I felt it not necessary to do so.

The fact that this seems to be a different species, I felt more compelled to report the event.

I felt as if it was looking for something very specific. On a most personal note, I felt compelled to stay with it and keep watching. I actually ran to clear the trees to keep watching. I experienced a feeling of extreme enthusiasm and deep curiosity like a child would. When I observed the object moving away from the area at an extreme high rate of speed I had a feeling of almost sadness. Something close to abandonment. The feeling was almost opposite the red fiery orbs.

I have also observed other objects maneuvering in the sky in different states in the US. The past 20 to 25 years I have observed several objects but in the past 2 years I have observed almost as many. Activity of these objects has increased almost exponentially.
