Orange / Red Orb in Oakland, TN traveling at constant speed and altitude on 07/14/13 appx. 21:00.

Approximately 21:00 on Sunday 07-14-2013 I along with others my neighborhood in Oakland, Tennessee, observed an orange/red orb traveling at a constant speed and altitude.

I noticed someone had shot off a few fireworks in the far distance. I saw a bright light between where the fireworks were being shot and where I was located.

At first we thought it was a firework. As we watched it, we noticed it was moving towards us. It seemed to be at a low altitude or either it was very big and gave that impression. It passed overhead and therefore I got a good view of it. The orb was circular like the sun and moon. It was very bright, but it did not cause me to squint to look at it as the sun does. It didn't have a tail, nor make any sound. It didn't have any other colors in it nor did it flicker like the ones you see on you tube videos.

After it passed over, I made a point to look at the rim to see if I saw anything emitting around it.

I did notice a little energy, I guess you can call it, but only when I looked hard at the rim after it passed. It was not a Chinese lantern as some may suggest.

I got a good look at it probably between 2 and 3 minutes, especially when it passed overhead. I know it was not what has been suggested it might have been to me. I had no funny feeling in my body as it passed over, just amazement.

That happened night before last and tonight I have a sore throat, gee I hope that orb didn't give me something! :o) I'm joking, but I'm also serious about that last statement!

If anyone has seen this orb or any other in Oakland, PLEASE report it to an online UFO reporting site. I'm sure all of us that have had the opportunity to see one of these orbs would love to see how many others in Oakland and across the country that have actually gotten to see one.

I'm wondering if it is a good or bad thing seeing one...I'm honestly having mixed feelings. What are they? Are they good, evil, just a ball of energy, a secret government! project or what?
