Slow moving orange ball of fire.While trick or treating with my son tonight, he spotted something directly over us and pointed up. Myself along with a few neighbors looked up to see a large, round, orange object, moving fairly slow. It seemed to have a weird haze around it, almost like it was on fire. It was very bright, silent, and seemed to be twice the size of a 737 airplane. Since it was dark, it was hard to tell how high it was, but I’m guessing maybe 1,500 feet or less. The object moved toward the west. My son was terrified and demanded to go home and stop trick or treating. I have seen meteors, shooting stars, the Northern lights, airplanes, helicopters, etc., nothing compares to this. It was only around for maybe 25-30 seconds (I was trying to get my phone for video, but was too late) and then it started to fade in and out, until finally it was completely gone. I called the local police department and they suggested it was a helicopter, but it wasn’t. I feel like it’s an insult to my intelligence when everyone I tell says it must have been a plane or a helicopter. My son is almost nine and is now scared to sleep in his bed alone tonight because of what he saw. I am a female criminologist in my late thirties, college educated, and honestly never really believed in UFO’s before tonight. After experiencing what we saw, I don’t believe there is currently anything that can explain it.
