Orangish yellow orb seen by a friend and II live on the second floor of a multi family home, and after long days I like to sit out on our balcony, just to relax. On this particular Thursday night, I noticed this small orangish yellow orb appear out of no where, which quickly caught my interest. At first I thought this ‘thing’ was a plane, until I noticed a commercial aircraft at a higher altitude and quickly realized that this orb didn’t have any of the normal red and blue/white flashing lights. So again, I studied this orb thinking that it may have been a helicopter with their spot light on, but for how low this orb was, it made not a sound. My neighbor came out, when I pointed out to her, just to make sure that I wasn’t seeing things, or that at the angle I was at, I may have missed something. Sure enough, she seen it as well, and confirmed that it was neither an airplane nor a helicopter. As she continued to talk to me, I did not once take my eyes off this ‘thing’. It was moving South to North, not extremely fast, but at a good speed. The next thing I know, it just disappears. I thought it may have just been blocked from my view, due to other houses and trees around me, but even after walking to a spot where there was nothing to block my view, I couldn’t find it anywhere. Even my neighbor could not spot it. I stayed out later hoping that it might come back, or that another one would come, in hopes to catch it in a picture or video, but the rest of the night went on uneventful.
