Around 12:30 am Wednesday morning, me and my friend witnessed an orange orb-like object hover across the sky. We had been sitting in a car for about 5-10 minutes and after already appreciating 2 lower flying airplanes in the night sky, we didn't know what to take of the object we were about to see. It became visible once passing a tree line a little in front of us. A round, bright orange orb-like object slowly hovered across the sky. Unlike any other aircraft I've ever seen, the ONLY visible part of it was the one bright orange glow it gave off. The light didn't flicker or dim, it was just a constant glow that moved eerily slow across the sky. Even outside of the clouds in the clear sky it appeared only to be an orange glowing orb with a small trail kind of as if it was on fire. As the object moved in the opposite direction of us it appeared to be losing most of its orangish glow and turning yellow/white and then disappeared very suddenly which also threw me! off. Although I'm a believer in ufos and extraterrestrial life, im not one to be easily convinced that something is extraterrestrial nor would I concider reporting anything, but this sighting was way too abnormal for me to convince myself otherwise.
