Location: Portland, ME
Shape: Light
Duration: 45 sec - 1 min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bright orange orb observed flying over Casco Bay from the Eastern Promenade.

Standing on the Eastern Promenade a bright orange orb was coming in fast from the south east over Peak's Island and then dramatically taking a turn very fast and heading northeast and then fading very quickly in the night sky over long island.

The light was orange like fire and did not look like a shooting star, as it turned vastly and did not break apart.
