Location: Florissant, MO
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 20 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
Big bright red-orange object flying horizontally at about 5000ft-10000ft rotating slightly as it moved Northeast.

As I pulled up to my house, I seen a bright red-orange ball of light flying in the sky going Northwest over my house. I ran inside my house and yelled "UFO! UFO!"

My mom jumped up from the couch and stood next to me as we watched the luminous object move pretty swiftly across the sky.

I ran in my parents bedroom and retrieved my dad and my brother and by the time we got outside to get a better look the craft was almost out of sight and flew behind our tree and finally over the cloud cover. It covered a vast distance in about 20 seconds of time and was high enough in the air to go above the clouds.

The creepy party about it was that once it flew behind the clouds we could still see location of the object as the red glow could be seen through the clouds for a few more seconds.

The object almost seemed to be rotating as it moved across the sky.
