Description: I was about 10 years old. My friend and I were behind our apartment complex playing. I don't remember what made us look up, but we saw this bright orange slant against the sunset. It was diagonal to the horizon. At first it was still and looked strange. It QUICKLY got closer to us... So much that we ran into my apartment because it seemed it would crash into the earth. We told my mom what had happened and went back outside to see if it was still there.
On our way back out, I thought my nose was running from the cold, so I wiped it with my jacket sleeve. I noticed it was a lot darker then it should have been. I then realized it was blood!
We looked up in the sky and it was gone! No sign that is was there! My friend and I went on and on about what we saw. We couldn't believe that it wasn't still there because it was so large... This all happened in a matter of less than five minutes. How could it be gone? They next day I school I told everyone in our class and she completely denied it! She's the only other witness... I don't know if she told her parents and they told her to not tell people things like that, or she just didn't want to seem "crazy".
I'll never forget it. I wish we had camera phones back then.
