At 2000 hrs on 3/5/2016 I was walking my dog on a dimly lit street. I was walking due East, when something caught my eye in the Sky. It was a silent bright glowing orange ball with a trail that was leaving flashes behind it. The ball was going due North, didn't change direction but did arch. It disappeared as silently and cleanly into the night as it appeared. The sighting was 5 seconds long. It was the altitude of a small plane. There was no sound, and no other planes in that altitude or area at the time. I am about one block from Patrick Airforce Base, and it was headed in that exact direction.
