Shape: Light
Duration:Approx 2 minutes
Amber light moving westward over Vero Beach, Florida.

Around 21:35 on 3/21/11, I went out as usual to walk my dog for the last time. I often look at the stars, planes, etc. This caught my eye right away. It was a solid amber light to the south, far brighter than any aircraft light. When I first noticed it, it was very bright and oval shaped, very far away and about halfway up into the sky. It was moving at what appeared to be a slow rate straight across the sky towards the west from my location. Although the rate seemed slow, it only lasted about 2 minutes from when I first saw it, and slowly faded away, giving the appearance it may have been moving very quickly due to its apparent distance away. There were no sounds, no flashing lights, just solid amber. I was in the Coast Guard and also fish in the ocean frequently at night. I have NEVER even thought I saw anything resembling a UFO, but I can say without a doubt I have NEVER seen anything like this. My gut reaction was to go get my wife to come loo! k at it, since I knew she would think I was crazy, but I was afraid if I did, I would miss something, or it would be gone. Awesome experience!
