The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
While at the beach with my friends around 11 pm we observed a bright reddish orange light moving south. as a spaceflight enthusiast i assumed it to be a satellite however i realized that this could not be the case as it was too late for any satellites to be visible. the object was also moving far to fast to be a airplane as well as not having any of the characteristic flashing lights on the wings or central body of the aircraft that we can always see from this location. the object then made a quick u turn and headed back north. i believe it also descended at this point and we were able to follow it for a bit longer until it went behind a cloud from which it should have come out almost immediately but it disappeared.
this can all be corroborated by my friend who is also well educated and not usually one to come to a ufo conclusion.
up until this point i would never have thought i would be reporting a ufo sighting but this experience was definitely unexplainable.
