Orlando, Florida Bright Orange UFO Seen Towards A Wooded Area

Date: Late 40's and early 50's.
Time: Daytime sighting.

HBCC UFO Research Note: If anyone might have any information on this sighting which is described below, would you please be kind enough to forward HBCC UFO Research the details of what you witnessed. Not only would I like to know, but the witness is looking for anyone else as well.

Dear Sir, when I was a small child in Orlando, FL in the late 40's and early 50's, I recall my parents seeing something that was bright and orange one night after dinner when we were on the way to visit friends who lived in the country. My Dad stopped the car and we got out and all I can recall is looking off towards a wooded area and seeing what I, in my youthful perception, thought was the setting sun, but which my parents said was in the wrong place for the setting sun. It was still daylight when this happened, though at the time of day the sun would soon be setting. I am curious as to where there is anything you have run across or have access to that contains a report of this sighting by anyone else. ( I am sure my parents did not report it to authorities, and since they are both long deceased, I can't ask them.) As to the location, all I can recall is that we were headed from the Conway area towards Colonial drive somewhere. It was country then but is all developed now, and I am no longer familiar enough with Orlando to be anymore specific. Now, in my waning years, things like this pique my curiosity, where they did not so much when my parents were available to provide more information. Thank you.

Thank you to the witness for their wonderful report of another excellent sighting of a UFO.
