OK folks, I saw something unusual, early this morning. Here is my official report.
Location: Breckenridge, Texas
Date of Sighting: March 21, 2013
Time of Sighting: 02:30 (AM)
Duration of Sighting: Approx. 2 minutes
Object shape: Orb
Object characteristics: Brilliant orange ball of light
Object Path: Straight line path
Distance: Over 1 mile
Size of Object: Unknown
Summary: Brilliant orange light moving across and above the Northern horizon.
The date was 3/21/2013. I was letting my dogs in at 2:30 am, when I noticed a brilliant orange light ball of light approximately 4 to 5 degrees above the Northern horizon. I could just make it out over the top of some distant trees.
When I first noticed the light, it was approximately 10 degrees West of True North. When the light disappeared, it was approximately 5 degrees West of True North, having traveled more or less 5 degrees (level path).
At first I thought it was a new guard (pole) light I had not noticed before but then as I stared at it, the light seemed to be moving very slowly towards the East.
I grabbed my binoculars but still could only see a brilliant orange light; no structure or craft was visible. The object momentarily moved behind a larger group of trees, then reappeared for perhaps 10 seconds. Before I could take a photo, the light vanished as if it winked out.
I stood watch for several minutes to see if it would return but it never did.
I also want to note that this object was apparently over large power lines, which run north of my location.
As I stated in the report, I honestly thought at first it was a new guard light. However, it was a degree or two higher than any of the guard lights (at that distance), in the photo that I took afterwards, plus guard lights on poles do not move.
I placed the orange dot on the photo to represent how I saw it, though the dot cannot come close to showing how brilliant this object was. If I had been standing near this object, it would have been too bright to look at.
