Saw an orange globe over N. East Fort Myers sky from Cape Coral, thought it was part of the meteor shower, but it came in fast and dipped into the eastern horizon then re-appeared briefly shooting 1/3 of the way up from entry point, then very quickly as one orange globe still the same feel down again into the horizon, nothing like a meteor. Anyone out there, we are seeing more of these, and we were not even looking, that is how bright it was and obscure.

This is our second sighting, last one the green fireball in Nov. 2016, witnessed from Ft Myers to E. Coast of Florida. Very bright orange and no tail, which made it really surreal.
