A large bright orange glowing ball floating silently above the trees.

Our First Sighting: A Large Bright Orange Glowing Ball Floating Silently Above the Trees, It Was Headed South, Then West A Ways, Then Headed Directly North On 07/03/2013 North Platte, Nebraska I was sitting out back on our deck behind our house, on the south side of our house. It was about 10:15 pm when I noticed a large bright orange glowing ball.

At first it was moving from east to west above the tree line beside our house, headed south then it went a west a ways, then it headed directly north. It was about the size of a small airplane, but it was round, it continued above the tree line heading west.

I ran to the back door & called to my husband to come quick & hurry, come here fast!! He did, I pointed to the object & he looked & saw it too. He said: I see it! There was no sound coming from it. As we watched, it then went off toward the south, my husband had to leave, so I watched it as it then turned & went west a ways before heading off north until it was out of my site.
