Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes
Bright light, glowing red object, neon tubes begin the glow.

On Friday evening, November 21, at 23:05 hours, I was onboard ((company name deleted//a cruise ship) from the Caribbean. We were sailing north and I was looking out of my stateroom window located on the starboard side of the ship. I observed a extremely bright light which I believe was on the water. I could not tell the distance of the object or ship.

While looking at the object, I observed a orange glowing light traveling from the direction of the light with a trajectory towards the ship. The object's trajectory was arching up and quickly traveled over the top of the ship.

As the object was being observed, the neon light tubes on the stateroom mirror began to glow. This continued for about one or two minutes, then stopped. The bright light on the ocean appeared to be stationary.

We were traveling at about 14 knots. The bright light eventually left my field of vision towards the ships stern. This event was also observed by my wife. (It is noted the size of the very bright light was about the size of a pencil eraser including the halo surrounding the light.)

My best guest of the location was between Jacksonville Florida and Brunswick Georgia.

((NUFORC Note: We have spoken via telephone with both the husband and wife, and we deem them to be exceptionally qualified, and exceptionally credible, as witnesses. The report originally indicated that the sighting had occurred on a Saturday night, but the witness corrected it to Friday, November 21st, 2014. PD))
