Shape: Sphere
Duration:1 minute
Fire in the sky.

I was sitting at a red light at the corner of Mcarthur and South Grand, when I saw what I thought was a floating lantern.

When it got closer I noticed it was not a lantern but a sphere of electricity. It was like lightning trapped in the sphere with the color of fire.

It was flying low like a helicopter and heading towards Washington park.
