Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 min.
sitting on the deck of an oceanfront beach house, at approximately 10:00 p.m., an orange plasma ball appeared about a mile or less out over the water, maybe a few hundred feet above the water. It was approximately a hundred yards across.

I fixed my eyes on it, so as not to lose it in a blink. All of a sudden it got real big. I don"t know if it just expanded or if it traveled closer. I was initially very excited and ran to call for my wife so she can see it too. She missed it, but there was another couple beside me watching this also.
