Location: Kaneoeh, HI
Shape: Other
Duration: 1 minute
Brilliant orange/red, large as the moon object flying(?) parallel to Earth at a constant speed with non-erratic movement.

At approximately 2327 hrs. on 7/30/14, I was putting my dogs away for the night when a movement in the sky caught my eye.  I saw a huge fiery, brilliantly colored orange/red “thing” moving towards the N/NW direction at a fairly high rate of speed.  

It was parallel to the earth and appeared to be as big as the moon.  It was not irregular in movement.  The shape appeared to be a bit elliptical, but I may be wrong.  

I witnessed it for approximately 1 minute until it disappeared over the Koolau Mountain range on the windward side of Oahu near Kahaluu.  

I called a local television station to see if they had received any other reports and they stated they had not.  

This is the first time I have ever witnessed such a thing and it was enough to scare me and keep me awake and watching the sky most of the night.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the woman who submitted the report, and she sounded to us to be quite eloqent, sober-minded, and responsible. We suspect that she is a very good, and reliable, witness. PD))
