This just happened about 15-30 minutes ago, at about 3:30 AM. I was standing in my kitchen getting some water when I heard what sounded like a washing machine.
The sound got louder and louder. Then it sounded like a jet was landing on my street!
I ran outside and watched a large orange glow and a white blinking light just above it fly towards the west. I just stood there and watched it until it was out of sight, because of the condos.
I didn't have time to grab the camcorder because the object's speed was pretty fast. I only had about 10 seconds to watch it.
I waited to see if there were any blinking or stationary wing lights, but I didn't see any-just the orange one and the blinking white light.
The sound was strange. I didn't think it was a plane or jet. I thought it was something on TV until it roared overhead. I keep trying to make sense of it and explain it.
All I know is that if I hear a washing machine sound again, I'm grabbing the camcorder.
Check out the picture I made of it. What could it be? Who knows?... maybe it was just a jet but then again...
