Large star-like orange / red fireball seen hovering, un-moving in Shepherdsville, KY, until it faded awayOctober 2, 2012 I was sitting on my porch balcony at Cedar Groove Apartments in Shepherdsville, KY.I was texting a friend of mine and had my cell phone in hand, sitting on a cushioned bench on my porch. I was facing approximately 162° SE at around 10:50 PM, deep into the text message I was sending on my phone.Once I sent the text. I looked up and was about to retrieve my laptop, when something bright caught my in the corner of my eye. I then turned my head slightly to the right, to see a large bright orange colored fireball in the sky. It looked like a star, only several times brighter and very close.Its exact location from where I was sitting is 200°S.At first I thought it was a street light that I had not noticed before. I just moved into these apartments yesterday. (Cedar Groove in Shepherdsville KY) As I watched it I thought “Maybe it is a plane. I am close to the airport. It has to be a plane.” I watched it hover, unmoving, unwavering, shimmering like a large bright star / fireball.I thought it would at least move and so I could see the lights of an airplane. It’s often common to see a light, and then realize it’s a plane simply preparing for landing as they turn.Well, it did not do anything. I sat there watching it hover for at least 30 seconds until it started to quickly fade. It was almost like it was a burnt out ball of fire. The last thing I could see of it was a tiny red/orange dot, and then it was gone.I heard no noises. In fact, there were no airplanes for a while until afterwards the airport seemed to make the path go through the exact same area where I saw the UFO, and back towards me heading west. That was not until around 11:20 when I started to see airplanes in the skies from the nearby center of UPS.The oddest part about this is I have not seen a UFO for years. I lived in Reno Nevada ans used to see flying UFO’s quite a bit.Most of those objects moved in strange patterns, and I saw most of them during the day. I have NEVER seen anything like this in all of my 31 years. I will be simply amazed if I was the only person to have seen this sighting.There was no denying how big and bright it was.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information.
