I was on my way home with my boyfriend and we were driving down highway 10, just talking as usual. We had the windows rolled down and we were just cruising and somehow I leaned over his seat and looked out his window. I don’t really remember why or what thought came in my mind as to why I leaned over his seat the precise time I saw the orb. But when I looked out the window, I caught a glimpse of the orange orb. At first I thought it was a lightening bug or firefly. But then I realized how high it was, that it couldn’t be a bug. It was a little higher than a telephone line. I told my boyfriend and he was just as shocked as I was. He was telling me to record it since he was driving, but my phone quality was horrible and it didn’t catch the sight of it at all. We hurried up and pulled over and when we got out, we could see the orb steady climbing the sky. It was going in a diagonal direction and had a steady beam of light. It couldn’t have been any typical aircraft. Usually planes or helicopters have the blinking lights or noticeable features. This looked like an orange orb, not a chinese lantern nor a hot air balloon. We were watching it for about five minutes till it finally was as high as the stars. We could tell it was so high because the light from the orb started to diminish and eventually it went away. All this time it was moving higher and higher.
This was the most exhilarating experience ever because I have never experienced an unknown phenomenon.

One more thing I forgot to mention, THERE WERE NO SOUNDS EMITTED FROM THE OBJECT. It was soundless, no sound of existence of an engine/motor/anything electrical.

My observations from the object:
Since it seemed to start closer to land, it may have been on land to begin with. Than departed towards the sky and eventually towards space? Just my guess.

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (, organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
