Shape: Sphere
Characteristics: Lights on object

Orange sphere with two blue spheres attached, moving west to east, Pensacola, Florida.

I was outside and I noticed something out of the corner of my eye. I looked up to the sky, and saw a glowing object traveling west to east. It was round; or rather it was a larger sphere with two smaller spheres on the bottom. It was totally silent. The larger sphere glowed orange, and the smaller spheres were blue. It was not a plane, and it did not look like any meteor I ever saw. It moved too quietly and too fast for a plane, and too slowly to be a meteor. The orange glow was very distinct. The two smaller spheres on its bottom were too large for aircraft lights and were not flashing or bright enough.

As I said, the object traveled west to east, low in the sky. It wasn’t tiny, nor was it large. It was much larger than a meteor. It was not a fireball. The glow seemed to come from inside the sphere. It didn’t leave any trail; there was no sound, and no electrical malfunctions at my house. When the object passed over me, and was east of me, it completely disappeared. It wasn’t far enough away to have been out of viewing range. It was there and gone. Just like that. I stood outside a while to see if there was any more activity, but I saw nothing else except for flashes of light from a thunderstorm far to the east-southeast.

This is the second time I have seen a UFO in the past 4 months. The other one disappeared, then reappeared, then disappeared again. I hoped this one would reappear, but it did not. It was just before 1 am central time.
