Location: Powell, OK
Shape: Sphere
Duration:3 seconds
My mother and I saw a sphere of light travel through the house, while sitting watching TV.

Myself and my family, which consisted of my father, mother and older brother, were sitting in the living room on a hot summer evening watching TV. We did not have an air conditioner at the time, so we had all the windows and doors open trying to stay as cool as possible. When it happened it did so very quickly. As I said we were watching TV, with the TV on the north side of the room, the doorway to the kitchen on the west and the exit to the bedroom and the front door on the south. As we were watching TV (except my mother who was looking into the kitchen) a 6inch sphere of pale orange light entered through the kitchen window, and traveling very quickly came into the living room, left through the north doorway and went out the front door. It happened so quickly that I turned to my mother and asked her if she saw that, which she did. Apparently my father and brother who sitting closer to the TV, and who were directly under its flightpath (6ft off the floor) didn't notice anything. As I said it was pale orange and glowed, and as my mother put it (who is present at this writing, and from whom the bulk of this report comes) "it looked like a ball of fire". It took about 3 seconds for it to cover the distance it traveled (About 10ft through the kitchen, 6ft into the living room, turned and traveled about 8ft into the bedroom, crossed it (7ft) and went out the door.). Also it moved in a straight line as it came through the kitchen, then with a slight up and down bobbing motion as it crossed the living room, then again traveled in a straight line out the front door.
