Location: Wildwood, FL
Shape: Fireball
Duration: <2 minutes
Stationary silent orange glowing object that faded away to look like a star in less than 2 minutes.

40 years of part time sky watching stars space station meteor shower had never seen a UFO.

Taking garbage out around 4 am I notice a bright orange light to the low east where Venus has been appearing about 6 am. seems stationary I try and rationalize well is there a utility light in that direction no there isn't.

All of the sudden it is fading and in less than 2 minutes it looks like a fading star. I have watched the space station take 6 minutes across the sky and end up trailing off like a star.

Guess there is a first time for everything.

In going to your sight I see others have seen familiar sights.

Silent bright orange no idea how far away it was.
