Montclair, NJ

Shape: Sphere | Duration: 3-5 minutes

Orange flickering spherical object flys over Montclair NJ silently at steady speed & altitude.A round, orangish, flickering sphere flew south to north over my location at Church Street & Park Street. At first I thought it was a small plane or helicopter but it became obvious this was a spherical object which made no sound. An airplane bisected it's path at a higher altitude and the difference was obvious. The plane had blinking lights and made noise and I could make out the plane's shape. Even though the UFO was at a lower altitude I couldn't make out the same detail as I could with the plane. It was a round flickering orange object moving at approximately the same speed of a plane and made no noise. I've never seen anything in the sky that prompted me to take a picture before. It's speed rules out a weather balloon or Chinese lantern. And it's trajectory rules out a meteor/comet, etc because it flew straight and didn't change altitude as best as I could tell and was steady in its speed. I'm curious if anyone else saw it. A friend came by and I point! ed it out to him and all he said was "what the fuck?". By the time he saw it, it was much further away yet it still appeared odd enough to him to elicit his response even though the detail in which I saw it was no longer visible to him.
