Reported: 7/28/2016 5:22:03 AM 05:22
Posted: 8/2/2016
Location: Austin, TX
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 2 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
White light orb with long vapor trail

Object was witnessed by myself only as I was driving home.
Location is east Austin.
Duration was just a few seconds before it disappeared out of view.

Object was a white light sphere. Very bright. Perhaps the size of a van or SUV. It was not strobing like other spheres I have encountered. Just a solid white orb traveling basically horizontal, maybe slightly angled downward. Flew from west to east. Was no more than an 8th of a mile away and perhaps 600 feet above ground level. What made this orb unique from all the other orbs I've witnessed (I've had more than a few UAP encounters) was that it had a fiery orange/red vapor trail behind it. This thing was moving very fast like I said it was only visible for a couple seconds, but I knew right away that it wasn't any conventional aircraft or pyrotechnics display... And it was totally silent as per usual.
