BRIGHT ORANGE BALL TURNS TO DISC LIKE UFO.

DRIVING ON SOUTHWEST 9TH AND WATROUS, WHEN I LOOKED TO THE NORTH AS FAR AS THE EYE COULD SEE I SEEN A ORANGE BALL OF LIGHT MOVING AT A VERY HIGH RATE OF SPEED.

I GOT OUT OF MY VECHILE. THE OBJECT GREW BIGGER WHEN IT GOT CLOSER TO ME. THEN STOPPED RIGHT ABOVE ME. LIGHTING STRUCK, THEN LITE UP THE SKY BRIGHT WHITE THEN THE OBJECT WAS CLEARLY THE SHAPE OF A DISC LIKE UFO. WHEN THE SKI DARKEND, THE OBJECT TURNED TO A DIMMER ORANGISH RED AND FLEW EAST SLOWLY UNTIL IT DISAPPEARED.
