Description: Three of us in a car. Husband driving, My Father next to him and I was on the back seat. Saw orange glowing ball shape high in sky out to my left. It seemed not to be moving. My Father then saw it as well. As we turned the corner I then could not see it but both my husband and father could see it above them. Pulled car over to stop. My husband and I were out of the car in 2-3 seconds. The object had gone. My father had been watching it and said it just shot off. We then spotted it about 4-5 miles away to the north of us and watched it till it disappeared. It was definitely NOT a chinese lantern as I don't think they could move that fast.


UFOINFO Note: There was initially some confusion with this report that led me to think it was a hoax report, but after the witness contacted me I realise there was a misunderstanding and am now reinstating it.
