At 10:02 pm, my best friend and father walked outside to go have a cigarette. As soon as we got outside my best friend said "what the hell is that?!" I looked up into the sky, and there was this huge bright orange fireball looking orb. It was flickering between red and orange. I live right next to the boardwalk off the ocean, it was headed in a full westward movement. On the bottom of this orb, look like a white dome (like a half circle) it was a couple hundred feet in the air. And quite big. For the first minute or two it was headed steadily westward. And a pretty quick pace. Then out of no where it looked like it stopped and hovered. As it did the bottom white dome was no longer visible. Then they moved faster and headed north. And within less than a minute is had completely disappeared.

My father is very big into space, as we have family that works for NASA and he is quite knowledgeable. And he personally said he has never in his life seen anything like this.. I recorded a video of it on my iPhone, but it was quite crappy clarity since it was so dark out...

Called WPTV they asked us to send the video in.

So we shall see if anything arises from this.
