On july 10 my wife and i were camping at the lantern campground in jefferson, nh. it was just after 9 pm and my wife and i were sitting by the camp fire. my wife yelled to me asking me "eric, what is that in the sky?" initially i looked and couldn't see anything. the portable canopy we set up apparently blocked my view. my wife then repeated her question asking what that was in the sky. she then motioned for me to come over to where she was sitting in her chair and look for myself. i got up and walked over to her looking into the sky. i could not believe my eyes. it was a yellow/orange glowing orb like object moving very slowly in a north/north easterly direction. it appeared to be pulsating. at first i wasn't sure if it was a chinese style flying lantern that i have seen on tv. i thought this could be a possibility as the object appeared to be on fire. very quickly i dismissed this assumption as the orb appeared much more spherical in appearance. i quickly retrieved my phone from my camp chair and took a photograph. i then switched the camera to video. i began recording the video of the orb. the video i recorded was 22 seconds long. i stopped recording because as i recorded it looked to me like the video quality was not very good and appeared very "grainy." after i stopped the recording the orb continued for another minute or two in a north/north easterly direction. rather quickly the orb changed course to head in a more northerly direction and appeared to accelerate quickly. the orb appeared smaller and smaller and disappeared from sight. altogether the entire incident was approximately 2-3 minutes in duration.
