It was about 5:20 when my mother and I were sitting down in the den to eat supper and watch the football games on TV....my chair faces NE and we have a huge glass sliding door looking from NE to SE toward the ocean...we live directly on the beach....as I was watching TV, I noticed something glowing about 30 degrees off the horizon NE about a eighth of a mile out moving slowly about 10 or 12 miles an hour moving towards the SE...I got the binoculars and focused in and saw a round object, maybe 10 to 15 feet in diameter looking almost clear like the clouds around it to a very intense red and orange pulsating glow....it would look almost clear, then slowly get very red and orange like it was on fire, but no flames or smoke could be seen...there was absolutely no noise....my mother went back inside, and I stayed focused on the object as it moved through the clouds and then as I was about to stop looking, it went from pulsating to the blackest thing I have ever seen in the sky....it looked like a huge piece of charcoal....it was unbelievably black and looked very strange against the light to medium grey clouds around it.....I finally lost sight of it as it moved further and further away heading SE away from land and toward the open ocean.
