Shape: Light
Duration: 10 min.
Characteristics: The object changed color
Redish Orange light floating over Parrish FL. Changes from Orange to Grey and floats in one spot.

I was driving West on Golf Course Road, close to Fort Hammer Road in Parrish FL when I saw an Orange/ Red light right in front of me. At first, it looked like a Planet like Mars, but then I noticed that it was way too big to be a planet. I would say it was about a 5th the size of the moon. As I drove closer, I could see the stars behind it moving at a different speed. This is when I realized that this object was probably only a couple hundred feet above ground. It seemed to stay in one place, then it's glow went away, and it was just a dark grey color. I stopped my car and kept my eye on it. I opened my sunroof to watch it more closely. It slowly flew right over me, but I could barely see it. I couldn't hear any engines or propellers, but my car was running still. I was watching the constellations for a reference to it's speed and hight, and it went right in front of a star, so I knew it was there. I lost track of it and drove off. My wife was driving in he! r own car 2 minutes behind me. I called her and told her to look, as we were both driving home. She saw it too, and it turned Redish Orange again.
