what kind of tech exist for this? i was comming home from my pasture that we lease from moasic a phosphate mine in central florida as i was comming out of the main gate there was a brownish looking ball just shot accross the road in a stright line. the sphere couldnt have been thrown as it had no arch to the trajectory i saw it really clear for about 2 seconds it came out of one orange groves accross the road into another one is this some new type of drone or what? this really has me puzzled.

Have you considered it was...

a Basketball???



(actually, we call them over here 'Orange Cannons' (PVC pipe tube with gas chamber/ignition), those things will shoot an orange a few hundreds meters, perhaps it was a basketball cannon??)


EDIT
Thank god there's always a numpty on youtube that's built one!

As a kid, i kicked many a ball across a road.....are you sure this wasn't the case here? Kids messing about nearby, kick a basketball straight in front of your truck?

What about a frisbee then? Frisbee's can go quite a ways, hardly see them these days so it might have caught you un-awares?

Not saint elmos fire, that is not what he described.


read this article and let me know if it matches the description better en.wikipedia.org...


"The balls are reddish and have diverse size from smaller sparkles up to the size of basketballs;"

Hahaha You beat me to it. A solid kick on a basket ball can send them in a diredct straight line...

The odd part is, that it was the same colour and shape and size of a basket ball..


Oo

It's funny when you post incredulous stuff, folks will make fun of it. I know because I posted an incredible personal observation I had at approx 1 am in the morning through my window looking near my deck I observed a couple of strange looking entities. I got all sorts of laughs and suggestions from my beloved ATS folks but both my wife and I observed it so I do believe you when you said you saw something strange.
