Duration: 2 minutes
No of observers: 1

Location: Lincoln, NE, USA

Shape: Light

I saw a bright orange light rise up from near ground-level, hover a minute, and then ascend up into the sky.

I was just thinking back to a year ago when a UFO was seen over Lincoln, and looking out my window, thinking that the only way I would see one tonight is if one was to appear right outside my window.

At that moment, I saw a bright orange light ascending slowly in the sky, as if it just arose from near ground-level.

I couldn't see it clearly through my bedroom window as it rose higher, so I dashed over to my porch, which offers only a small patch of clear sky to view. The object hovered right in the small patch of sky at about 15 degrees over the horizon, while fireworks were going off far below it. It was a bright orange light that was mostly steady but occasionally would pulsate.

As I thought about going inside to get a camera, the object began to move away and within a minute or less, it rose up into the sky and disappeared.

During the entire sighting, I could hear no sound from the object, even when I went out on my porch to view it.
