It was July 4, 2013 at approximately 9:45 p.m. It was just dark enough to observe fireworks so I went outside. I looked to the NE and an unknown strange glowing object caught my eye. It wasn't acting like any normal firework, so I sprinted inside and grabbed my video camera.
When I came back outside and started recording, the light was slowly moving south from the northeast, and was not making a sound unless it sounded like popping fireworks. I figured it to be moving maybe 2-5 mph tops. I was startled, and my heart was racing with questions. The more I watched this glowing pulsating red-orange ball the more I began to realize it wasn't normal; it wasn't a plane or a helicopter. As I tried to follow the object with my camera, it was moving away. Then it just disappeared like a light switch.
I watched the skies for another minute or so, when, like a light switch, it was back, now due east and twice as high as before. I began filming a second time, but it was just too far away to capture any good quality, as you will see in the first video.
The object appeared to be 1/4 mile away and I could not determine size. From my vantage point, it was the size of a tennis ball. When I first witnessed the object, I knew it wasn't a firework because of its mannerism, shape, and pulsating nature. It was mostly all red with a pulsating orange in the middle. Seeing this object really scared me at first, but then I became 100% curious. I still would like to know what it was, as this incident remains in my daily thoughts.
The reason I am coming forward now is because I would like some answers, and if there is a 1% chance of this being a UFO sighting, unlike the government, I would like to make it public knowledge.
