National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 4/27/2013 21:20 (Entered as : 04/27/13 21:20)
Reported: 4/27/2013 8:03:03 PM 20:03
Posted: 5/15/2013
Location: Cobourg (Canada), ON
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 1.5 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Orange glow traveling silently at high speed in northwesterly direction.

A bright, orange glow, traveling in a northwest direction. No sound, no visible trail, no blinking lights.

High velocity - comparable to how a jet might appear at say, 5,000 feet.

Size was approx. 1/4 - 1/5 diameter of the moon.

It passed not directly overhead, but approx. 20 to the south of where I stood.

As it receded into the northwest distance, it appeared to hover 15 - 20 seconds, although this could be an illusion - its brightness and position seemed to remain constant for that duration.

I ran inside and grabbed some binoculars and managed to view it through them, but I could not focus on it - it was simply an orange glow.

It gradually faded from view well above the horizon, approx. 20 above the horizon.
