|As I exited the Halawa K-mart something above cought my attention. I immediately looked up and what I saw was a brilliantly lit, sphere shaped, bright orange object, silently slipping thru the atmosphere at a fairly high rate of speed from a north to south direction. The object appeared to be close to the ground opposed to being up in space. Possibly the altitude of a low flying airplane just above the clouds.
The size could be compared to a street lamp at about 100 yards away. I thought it could possibly be the space station but the object seemed so close and too large to be the space station in my opinion. I work at the airport around helicopters and fixed wing aircraft and I can positively rule them all out without a doubt. The 90 degree angle that I saw the object (directly below) with nothing behind it,no sound and the high rate of speed. It appeared to be a flying light bulb with no tail.
