Location: Gainesville, FL
Shape: Circle
Duration: Couple Seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Yellowish/orange sphere, extremely fast flew from horizon to horizon in seconds

I was walking my dog alone at night, facing west. For some reason I felt compelled to look up at a star behind me, to the southeast. As I was doing so, I saw the UFO come from the eastern horizon and zoom past to the southwestern horizon. It was too low to be a plane, but too high to have been anything else. It was incredibly fast. It crossed from horizon to horizon in the fraction of seconds. It was a very bright color, orange and yellow, and it did have a tail, like a comet would have, but could not have been a comet. There are no reports of comet sightings in my area. I suppose scientists might call it a fireball, but it did not appear to be on fire. As it passed it didn't make a single sound, very eerie.
