My husband and I saw a bright Neon orange orb fly to the sky for about a minute.

My husband and I were sitting outside on our apartment front porch when I saw a bright orange light coming from behind the trees northwest of us. As it came from behind the trees it was obvious it was not a plane, drone, or helicopter because of the size, brightness and consistency of the light source, and also how low it was and how fast it was going. The color of the orb was bright neon orange, and it did not look like head lights, or any other lights I have ever seen before, but it had a glow to it.

I got up and started video recording it, from our point of view it flew south towards the back of our apartment building, but was further past our apartment, then started going east then back south east. In that process, the light dimmed a little bit then they dimmed even more and within a few seconds it disappeared. When I say the object starting going different directions, I don’t mean sharp movements, but just slowly turning in those directions. Also, besides the other factors I mentioned before about it not being a plane I could also tell it was different because of the way it flew it was obvious that the way it was never in seen in a perfect straight course line like planes are seen doing. My husband as well as my neighbor, the whole incident lasted about a minute to a minute and 5 seconds long.

I do have a video that is 46 seconds long but because it was a cell phone recording you cannot see the orange glow. If I am able to send please forgive the cussing I was very excited.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with the wife, who submitted the report, and she sounded to us to be quite serious-minded. We suspect that she is a very reliable witness. PD))
