07/05/2019, 22:35, Kenneth City, FL- My daughter thought she saw a shooting star in the sky heading west bound towards the Gulf of Mexico, i hesitated to look when she said it because she is only 8. She said it again with such conviction in her voice that i looked Up this time and saw what appeared at first to be in fact, an orange/red looking shooting star racing through the sky. It was 22:35 when this happened and we were on our way into our apartment.

The sky was partly cloudy but not where the “burning orange/red circle” was at. We waited outside and stared in amazement at first for a few seconds while this light was flickering... it looked like it was fighting the clouds but there were none.

I’ve seen several shooting stars in my day and they’ve only usually last about 20-30. seconds tops. We were outside watching this for at least 4-5 minutes. So long that even a smaller commercial aircraft flew past this burning light heading opposite way and dwarfed the burning light making it look like the burning light was way higher in the sky. There is an Air Force Base in Tampa so who knows. But i know whatever my son and daughter and myself saw, was pretty cool.
