Further Description of Sighting: While standing at the end of my driveway with my fiance and her daughter, I spotted a bright red light in the northeastern sky. I pointed it out, thinking it to be a planet, as it seemed larger than a star. After pointing to it, my fiance’s daughter commented that it was moving. My fiance confirmed it was moving.
At first I argued but then realized it really was moving, slowly at first and gaining speed. As we watched the soundless, unblinking, sphere shaped object move in a straight line across the sky, it began to grow dim and then disappear completely, as if it had traveled away from us at a high rate of speed.
