It was in the early evening on April first, 2013 and I was in my upstairs living room drinking a Coke when I heard what sounded like an airplane outside the window. I got up and looked out the window and saw a black, bullet shaped object with a rectangular, orange, glowing tailpipe flying in a straight line in front of the trees. It had no wings or propellers. It was a little bigger than a basketball. There are power lines near my house and it came from that direction. I was stunned and curious but I did not feel threatened. It flew by too quickly for me to get my camera and soon it flew out of sight. I did not tell the neighbors about it because I thought they would not understand. They would call me crazy. Roughly a year later I saw another small UFO fly past the same window. It was shaped differently and I will fill out a separate report for it. I did see a mysterious helicopter hovering next to the power lines across the street sometime before I saw the first UFO. I waved at the pilot. He did not wave back.
