Description: I began researching the internet for mysterious sightings in the sky after my boyfriend, daughter and I saw what appeared to be a glowing orange ball floating in the sky this evening, 26 October 2013, at around 7:30 PM. We live in Perryville, Maryland. My boyfriend was outside with our dog and was the first to see it. He called me outside and I am glad he did because without seeing it firsthand, it would be hard to truly understand the unexplained sight. I called my daughter out and we all just stared at it saying the same thing: What do you think it is?
It was travelling west to east and moving at a fairly fast speed. I ran inside to get the video camera, but by the time I got back outside it was far in the distance. The color was more of an orange-yellowish color and the size was probably that of large beach ball.
We saw a low flying plane about 3 minutes after it passed that appeared to be following it, but I am not sure if that was just coincidence.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
