Man Sees Bright Orange Object Between Storm Clouds

Date of Sighting: December 16, 2007
Time of Sighting: 9 PM EST
Date Sighting Reported: December 20, 2007
Duration of Sighting: Few Seconds
Location of Sighting: Brooklyn, New York
Latitude: 40.69 Degrees North
Longitude: 73.99 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Broken Clouds Were Observed With Bases at 3,900 Feet. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the West at 39 MPH With Gusts to 46 MPH.
Astronomical: Moon Was Visible to the Southwest 20 Degrees Above Horizon. The Moon Was 37% Illuminated.

Description: Listen to Clip of Interview With Witness (MP3)
The witness stated that he was watching TV and felt compelled to look outside. He went to the window, opened it, and looked outside. He at once saw a bright orange object between fast moving storm clouds. He said that the shape was a "square and circle." He stated that object was moving slowly towards the northeast. It accelerated and disappeared. He said the object was visible to the northeast. He said that it was very windy at the time. (The official weather observation at Kennedy Airport confirms the weather conditions observed by the witness.)

Investigator's Notes: When I first heard the report I thought that the witness may have seen the moon between the storm clouds. However, the moon was visible in a different direction (southwest) and was only partially illuminated. Given this scenario I am not sure what the witness observed.
