Sighting Details

On Friday may 12, 2017 I was leaving to go to the store. when I stepped outside I saw a bright red glowing light in the sky. for a split second, i thought it was just a low flying airplane or maybe a helicopter. after a few seconds, i realized it was neither. there was no engine noise and it was moving way too fast. I pulled out my iPhone and started recording. when I zoomed in it looked more like a yellowish/orange disc flying across the sky. there was pretty good detail. I zoomed out to show the whole sky and when I zoomed back in the object had clearly gained quite a bit of altitude. it continued on its path until it disappeared over the horizon. only took about 90 seconds, maybe even faster than that.

I was so amazed at what I was seeing that I didn’t pay that much attention to it. all I know is that I try to watch all shuttle and rocket launches from cape Canaveral and I can view these from behind my house so I have a pretty good idea of how long it takes those rockets to leave sight. this was waaaaaay faster. I have already reported this sighting and sent the video to a ufo group in Florida who quickly responded that they think I took a video of venus or Jupiter…Lol! I have always been intrigued by astronomy and the possibility of life that exists other than how we know it. I can say with certainty that this was not a planet.
