Orange light moving rapidly across zenith. Close up view appeared bouncing. On July 8, 2017 at 5:35 PM my oldest daughter and her spouse, and my middle daughter and I were standing outside of our station wagon at Elberta, Michigan looking southwest across Betsie Bay at Frankfort, MI. admiring the lake view.
I happened to turn around and looked up and saw this large orange disc high in the sky. I am a pilot and familiar with planes. This was not a plane, no blinking lights and the speed it was traveling across the sky was beyond the speed of a commercial flight. I quickly asked my middle daughter to take out her phone and video it.
By the time she did (and put it on video) it was acting strangely. According to her video which was focused in on it, it was moving erratically. Visually all we could see was it was speeding across the sky heading southwest in a straight line until it disappeared. We were all aghast at the view and excited. I have been looking for a UFO since I heard about the Roswell incident, which happened the day after my marriage, so it was gratifying to finally see one.
