Bright orange light flying and then hovering in the skyAt 10 pm, while taking out the garbage, I looked up at the sky and saw a curiously bright orange light approaching from the southwest. I ran inside to get my wife, and we both observed the light for a couple of minutes. We saw it slow down, change direction, and hover in the sky. It appeared to be at a higher altitude than any recreational drones I’ve ever seen, its movements were definitely not consistent with those of an airplane, and we did not hear any helicopter or aircraft sounds. It had a fiery, and slightly flickery or pulsing, orange glow and didn’t seem to have any blinking lights like a traditional aircraft. While it was hovering, I took a short, blurry cellphone video, then I ran in the house for five seconds or so to get a better camera. When I returned, it had vanished.
