Hey Brian, I do not know what you can do with the information or for my peace of mind, but last night, November 6th, 2011 between 7:45 pm and 7:50pm in Cape Coral, Fla., myself first then my wife and two sons seen an orange fire ball. I was on the phone at the time speaking to a friend of mine who heard the whole thing.
I say fire because when it shot up from behind the tree line, but in the distance of the tree line it looked like a giant fire ball. It shot up on an angle fast as hell up into the southeast sky. My friend heard me say what the hell is that, then I yelled for my oldest son to come outside.
My wife and younger son came out with him. I then told my wife to get the binoculars. We all saw the same round orange glowing ball through the binoculars. We observed the ball through the binoculars for about 4 to 5 minutes going higher and higher, till it was out of view.
I mentioned in the beginning my peace of mind, I said that because I reported a sighting a few years ago to Mufon. I had 4 other witnesses to that one. The object was so close to me, above my head that I could have hit it with a rock if I wanted to. It was bigger then a commercial plane about 2 stories above my head.
I still picture it in my mind. I still can vividly see the look of the finish on the body of the object and I can describe in detail the whole object, but I still do not have any answers to what this was. I bothers me sometimes because I know what I saw and the other 4 people with me seen it to.
If I would have taken a picture of it, it would have been the best picture and this bothers me to because I never even thought of grabbing my phone to take a picture of it when I got out of my car to look at it.
If you are interested in that sighting let me know because there is a lot more to that story. I have seen several things in my life and never reported them because I was not sure, but the one I reported to Mufon, I clearly know what I was and was not looking at.
This goes for last night to. I know what I saw and nobody is going to convince me different. Respectfully.
