Duration:15
Orange Reddish Sphere over North Ft. Lauderdale.

Was out to see the rocket launch since it was such a clear night. Instead I see a orange reddish sphere traveling south.

As soon as I saw it, I knew it wasn't an aircraft since an aircraft would have flashing anti-collision lights on the edges.

I rushed to call my family inside, but by the time we came outside the light was gone.

Other aircraft were flying around this time, too.
