Shape: Orb
Duration: several minutes
Fiery red orb seen hovering over the city.

Was on my lanai facing south and observed fiery red orb hoverinig over the city, about 1/4 of a mile away. I took several videos (one is posted on my Youtube channel) but the images are slighly blurred because I was filming through the porch screen. Silent, perfectly still, no visible means of lift or propulsion. No other part of the craft was visible besides the bright red orb. I'm a retired airline pilot and life-long aviation enthusiast, yet can offer no explanation as far as what this object might be. Unfortunately my attention was then called inside and when I returned to my porch moments later it was gone. I did not see it leave the area.
