Was driving to pick up daughter from work. sitting at a traffic light, wife noticed it first. i initially ignored it and thought it to be aircraft lights. then looked and noticed it was not. best i can describe, it looked sort of like a balloon with fire flickering inside it, stronger toward the center and not quite reaching the perimeter of the object. it moved slowly from north to south, ascending slightly, and appeared to waver slightly while moving. if it were party balloon sized, it would have been perhaps eight stories up. however, another daughter saw the same object just as bright from 4 miles to our ssw. trees in her area would indicate that the object was higher and therefore larger than i had perceived. i ruled out aircraft lights because the we were not seeing the front of a craft due to its direction of movement. not a reflective surface as the change of angle during movement did not change light intensity. the outer perimeter surrounding the lit portion of the object was not quite clear. somewhat blurred to my eye. i can usually find a logical explanation for an odd sight, but this had me stumped, especially after hearing my daughters account of the object from her vantage point far away. anyway, i lost sight of it when the traffic light turned green and i had to make my left and continue on my way. thoughts?
