This was NOT a firework.

Me and my friends were popping fireworks. We do often joke that we are contacting UFO's with the lights. My friend was recording, when a fiery reddish-orange light went floating by. we tried to dismiss it as a flare, but it was in the air way to long, and it moved a large distance.

We then said maybe it was a plane. But a plane flew exactly next to it. It could have been a plane, especially by comparison.

My friends dismissed it still, but, i was still bothered by it. I think i have proof, but i haven't reviewed the video yet. So i would prefer to get back to you.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, who corrected the time. The sighting occurred during the evening. PD))
