Orb or Fireball seen in Austin Tuesday

We had some huge thunderstorms roll in to Austin at 1 am early Tuesday morning 3/20. My 16-year-old son looked out the window to watch the storm come in. We live on the 3rd floor over a ravine in Northwest Austin. He said he looked down and saw a red light that he thought could be a golf cart. This is a heavily wooded area that is hard to walk in. You couldn’t take a golf cart through there, let alone do it during a rain storm. I, who have never actually seen a UFO, congratulated him on his first UFO sighting. I was just joking but then I said "sounds like you saw an orb." He paused for about a minute and said, "Now that you mention it, that’s exactly what it looked like."

I just played Peter Davenport from C2C just today at work (Th 3/22) so it may have been the red fireball he was talking about. I am really into UFOs and have never seen one myself, and he had no idea of my interest in them before Tuesday.
