|Fire ball off I-264
As I was driving to work on I-264 in Va Bch headed toward the 264-64 interchange, out of my left window right above the street lights I saw this orange fire ball just sitting in one place with its lights fizzing or flickering very fast.
To me it looked like an orange static ball just floating there in one spot.
It was approx. 200 feet off the ground and about a 1/4 of a mile from the highway.
There was other air traffic in the same area as the object but as they continued on their path the fireball stayed in the same spot. Where the spotting took place there is alot of air traffic from Norfolk Intl and NAS Oceana.
I am in the Navy and I have worked on both F-18's and SH-60's and this was definitely not like anything I have ever seen in my life.
Please tell me I am not the only one who saw this!!!
