Duration:45 seconds
Huge red/orange fireball craft, no sound; Bremerton, WA 98310

While standing on my deck looking west, we often see helicopters land and take off in an old junior high field near Wheaton Way and Sylvan in Bremerton, accrossed from the library or going to Harrison Hosptial.

On 3/7/2012, I first thought I was seeing another helicopter taking off from the field, which is about 1000 yards away. However, as the craft rose and flew closer it was extremely bright like a huge flying fireball..dark orange/reddish color but bright like fire.

The craft flew directly over us (meaning my wife who I called out to "come see this..hurry hurry" and made no sound whatsoever. There were no wings or lights..just looked like a huge ball of fire.

It travelled steady and to the north east, perhaps twice the speed of an jet aircraft. We both watched as it simply disappeared.

I do not take drugs and was not drinking... this was very real and nothing we have ever seen before. We made a 911 report. I'm really hoping someone else saw the event. It also appeared that a search of the area was made by helicoptor and small plans circling after the event. Not for sure but was out of the norm.
