Location of Sighting: Pasadena, Maryland
Date of Sighting: June 28, 2018
Time of Sighting: 11:30 PM EDT
Description: I too saw something similar to this on Thursday the 28th of June around 10 PM. It looked like something entering the atmosphere. It came out of nowhere, got brighter and then disappeared. It lasted about 3 to 4 seconds. It was possibly a meteor, but it wasn’t moving very fast. Therefore, it’s possible we saw the same object. It was pretty cool though.
I’m pretty sure it was the same date and time as the original guy who posted. Any ideas of what it could have been? I believe I often see satellites moving in the sky. They look like tiny stars, and move at a constant slow speed without changing direction. I would say the orange object that entered the atmosphere was moving at a similar speed or a little faster, but it was much closer. As I mentioned, it definitely looked like it entered our atmosphere and burned up. Could it have been a meteor?
Note: The witness is comparing his sighting to the sighting of an orange globe that moved across the sky and vanished. This sighting was in Ocean City, MD on June 28 at 11:30 PM EDT. A check of the American Meteor Society website revealed that meteor (fireball) sightings were reported in Maryland and adjoining states late on June 28th and early on June 29th, 2018.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
