Cumberland, MD

Sighted on Friday 16. September 2016

Shape: Light | Duration: 1 minute

I saw an orange orb while looking out my window. I only saw it for a minute because of the rooftops nearby. It was about as bright as Jupiter or the international space station. It was headed roughly towards the east, and covered about 10 degrees of the sky in the duration of the sighting. It was clearly under an overcast sky. This and it's direction of travel rules out the space station. It was a steady orange-white color. The steady glow and calm air (I went outside to see if the wind was blowing in that direction) rules out Chinese lanterns.((NUFORC Note: Source of report describes himself as having a Ph.D. degree in a hard science. He currently works as a professor in his chosen field of science. PD))
