Red orb UFO sighting in Farmington, Minnesota. 06/18/2012

I walked out of my shop for a smoke at about 23:25 on june 18 2012. I looked up down the street and saw a red light in the sky thinking it was a flare. So I watched it for about a minute and noticed it wasn't falling or leaving a smoke trail like a flare would. I grabed my phone to record it thinking it was a bit odd and watched it move higher and higher. Then it ended up flying towards me and right over me until it was out of sight due the the roof blocking the view.

It looked like a red orb floating in the sky. More like a flare that didn't shimmer. It didn't have a single flashing light like all aircraft have. There was some cloud cover in the sky and this light was under the clouds. It didn't make a single noise as it flew over me. A plane flew by short after and the lights on it wasn't as bright as the UFO, the plane made noise, and was a bit slower as it flied by.

I didn't know what to make of this. I searched on google to see if there was a similar sighing and I found one that was exactly the same as mine. The only difference was that the other sighting had 3 UFO's and mine was only 1. I don't have any pictures, but like I said above, I made a video. The video quality wasn't nearly as good as seeing it in person but it was the only thing I could think of doing to capture it at the moment.
