Full Description & Details
My wife and I witnessed a ufo sighting from our balcony at Cocoa Beach Florida. The photo was taken with a Samsung Galaxy S4 cell phone. The object looked like a giant round fire ball with no distinct features. Here are some of my estimations: It appeared to be about 3 miles out to sea from the shoreline. The approx. altitude appeared to be about 5-7,000 feet. The speed I estimate to be about 100 mph (it was moving about the speed of a helicopter). It made absolutely no noise. From our distance the size appeared to be about the size of a hot air balloon. The direction of travel was from north to south following the shoreline. We observed it for approx. 1-1/2 minutes, then it seemed to arc skyward somewhat, then disappeared.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
