I was in Dayton, Virginia, a very mennonite influenced community, at a cookout with 12 people. Went outside at about 10:15 to smoke a cigarette and happened to look up in the sky and seen an orange pulsating orb flying over an open field. It started coming from the North and changed direction to the East very abruptly. When I first seen it I thought it may have been a helicopter then realized it had no indicator lights and was making absolutely no noise. I yelled at all of my friends and they came out and watched it until it vanished behind the treetops. It was a reddish orange glow that was moving at a steady pace from the North traveled about a minute then abruptly changed directions and headed toward the East. It started to ascend and then dissapeared. My buddy grabbed his phone and started to tape it. I was in awe and extremely shocked but also mesmerized and intrigued at the same time. After it had vanished I thought extremely hard and realized there was no logical explanation for what happened, especially being as it had absolutely no noise. The object went behind my view and behind the treetops after about 3 minutes of watching it.
