Location: St. Petersburg, FL
Shape: Sphere
Duration:2-3 minutes
Orange Reddish sphere heading west in the sky rapidly and disappeared into a small dot.

My friend and I were outside on our front porch and happened to look over towards the eastern sky. An orange/red ball like light was approaching heading west. We stepped off the porch into the yard to get a better look and noticed a flare like light around the object.

There was no noise emanating from it; engine, propeller or otherwise. It seemed to be moving at a pace more quickly than a plane but the duration lasted longer than that of a shooting star or comet.

As it made its approach over our heads heading west, it slowed a bit and the flare seem to pulsate somewhat. It continued its path west and began to diminish in size and instantly disappeared into the western sky.
