UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Pembroke Pines, Florida

Date: 07/04/98 approx 8:30-9pm EDT

Approach Direction: East

Departure Direction: West

Witness Direction: East

Description: I was with my family at my sister-in-law's house in western Pembroke Pines watching the fireworks that we could see to the east from the back of her house. I suddenly noticed an orange oval approaching silently from the east. As it got closer and glided directly overhead, I noticed it was perfectly round. The sky was overcast with clouds and no stars were visible. It was either in the clouds or below it, I couldn't tell, but it definitely was heading towards the west in a straight line. It wasn't a really bright but it was definitely orange. It could have been in the clouds so that is probably why it wasn't bright. I went around the front of the house(western side) to retreive the binoculars from my wife's van, but by the time I got them, it was out of sight.

Color/Shape: orange, round, silent

Height & Speed: can only estimate it was 1000+ feet, moving slowly. If you were to trace the movement with your finger pointed at it and following and counted saying 100 after every number, it would have moved from about 45 degrees from you to the east to about directly overhead, you would have hit only the number 10

TV/Radio/Press: no known report on TV or radio
