Duration:45 sec.
We were driving S. from Orlando on the toll road towards Boca Raton, FLA. We saw the 'moon' glowing a bright orange low in the sky in the east. We realized the moon was high in the sky, and that this was a total anomaly/ufo. It started moving, assuming a cigar shape/outline with a tongue of flame under it and to the the rear. We noticed other cars pulling over to get a better look and as I started to do so I looked up again and saw it disappear, leaving only a glint of light where it had been. Amazing.

I am a psychiatric social worker and am perfectly healthy and sane. I am 44yrs. Have a Masters degree. Have always worked. Have never seen a ufo before. I was on holiday with my wife and kid. My wife also saw it, and she has a similar background as myself.
