Duration:30 seconds
woke up, the power was out, steeped outside to second floor balcony.

to see if the power was out just in my apartment, or power was out in the area.

The power was out everywhere. looking at the night sky, was a bright full moon. was hoping to get a good view of the stars, with the power out. But the moon was so bright, was not able to get a good view of the stars. looking toward the western sky I see a very bright orange light, moving at high speed. Moving from west to east.

It had a oval shape. It had no contrail, made no sound.

I was in the USAF. I know what I saw was not any kind of winged aircraft, or meteor. i estimate it past within a mile or two from were I live. I went around the back of the complex to see if i see more of it. But it was already gone. Spoke to a man that lives next to me said He saw it also.
