Around 4:36am on 11/1, i had just woken up and stepped outside to enjoy my morning coffee and cigarette. i sat down on our patio and looked up and noticed a strange orange orb in the sky. my initial thought was strange lights for an airplane or type of aircraft, but noticed there was no trajectory of this object. i then monitored the object to see if it had any trails as it could potentially be a meteorite, but nothing. the object in the sky was a large orange orb, too large to be a star, which had a transparent blue-ish tint surrounding it. the object was hovering in the same location in the sky (north) over the bay area in california, it was moving ever so slightly in what appeared to be left to right. the object was pulsating in color, going from a darker orange to brighter and the pulsating reminded me of a fireball. from when i initially spotted the object, it sat in the sky hovering and pulsating for about 50-60 seconds. after that time, the size of the object got smaller and color started to dim and appeared to be going back into the night sky and then it disappeared out of sight. i was able to capture of a video of the encounter, unfortunately on my ipad and not the greatest image quality. i did do some research after, and the object i saw is identical to other encounters of orange glowing orbs in the sky in fl and ca over the past 6 months.
