Location: Long Beach, CA
Shape: Circle
Duration:5 minutes
Large bright orange circle, rapidly ascending from sea level straight up in to the stars

My condo is right on the beach. From my window I can see out in to the ocean and the brightly lit loading docs just east of the Queen Mary. Last night, approx 9:20pm PST, I was watching TV and noticed a bright orange circle from my window, moving towards me just above those loading docs.

I looked closely to see if there were any flashing red or white safety lights (like normal man-made airplane) but it was just a solid orange light with somewhat of a fog around it.. (note the night sky was crystal clear a few minutes earlier).. and it was approaching me fast! I grabbed my phone and BOLTED downstairs to the end of street (which sits right on the sand) to get a video. By the time I got there, what was once just hundreds of feet away was now thousands of feet up and same altitude as other airplanes (which you could differentiate by the flashing white and red safety lights).

The bright orange light continued to to move southeast and vertical *extremely* fast towards the stars until it shifted direction, dropped down super fast then faded away. I captured the whole incident on video.. It's very obvious no man made craft can move that fast.
