Duration:1-2 minutes
A round red/orange fireball travelling horizontally.

My wife and I witnessed a ufo over the Cocoa Beach, Florida area on Oct. 25, 2014, at approx. 8:45 pm. The accompanying photo was taken from a Samsung Galaxy S4 phone.

The object looked like a giant red/orange fireball with no distinct features, travelling horizontally following the shoreline. We observed it for about 1-1/2 minutes.

The object appeared to be about 2-3 miles out to sea from the shoreline. The approximate altitude was about 5-7,000 feet. I estimate the speed to be about 100 mph (it was moving about the speed of a helicopter). The object made absolutely no engine noises.

The direction of travel was from north to south. Facing the ocean, Cape Canaveral was on our left and Cocoa Beach was behind us and on our right. From our vantage point and distance, the object appeared to be about the size of a hot air balloon.

After observing the object for about 1-1 ½ minutes, it seemed to arc skyward somewhat then disappeared.
