Shape: Circle | Duration: approx. 7 minutes

Smooth, round orange ball moving through the sky and going down into the trees.It was very late at night/early morning, about 2:10am. I hadn't been in bed long when my mother called me to look at something out the window with my friend, who was also witness. I looked out of my bedroom window and seen a hazy orange glow - it was obscured by the screen, so I went for a closer look out of the living room window, from which it could be seen in perfect clearness. The sky was clear with a few clouds, none of which were near what we seen.It was a round orange ball in the sky across the road and field to the west in front of our house, above and diagonal with the treeline. Not at all like a meteor, which most people would think of when I describe it, as it wasn't a "ball of fire"; It was bright and light orange; the edges were even brighter, a red-orange. My mother, who had been watching it for longer and when it was higher in the sky, said there was a half-ring of darker flickering 'fire' on the left side (I couldn't see this, because it was hidden very partially by the trees). It was very smooth, lacking any pock-marks or lights, metal sheen or anything at all but smooth orange, unlike most "UFO" sightings I've read about...it was nothing I've heard of before. It was perfectly solid looking, emitting no glow. It was large, or seemed pretty big, although to give a description of the size is difficult. Looking through binoculars, it was a definite sphere.At first, I thought it might be the moon -- but then I realized... the moon isn't full. In fact, it's only in first quarter. The majority of what we seen would have been the side that is DARK. Later on that night (morning), my mom seen the moon nowhere near where the orange circle was, high in the air, and white, to boot.It was moving... very slowly, diagonally downwards and to the right, further into the trees - it didn't look like it was moving unless you watched closely. When it was in the trees, it noticeably paused. Although it was difficult to tell, it looked as if along with the trees in front of it, the circle also obscured the trees behind it, but it's hard to say for sure. It stayed there for a moment...an orange glow in the forest (though it didn't actually glow)...and then went *staight down*, quickly -- not light-speed, but about five or six times faster than the sun sets and disappeared out of sight. As I was thinking of running for the camera, that's when it went down. In retrospect, it was rather pretty, but at the time, it gave off no such vibes... there was an eerie quiet and still. None of the traffic that had been going by drove down the road the entire duration of the sighting, but started up again only minutes after it disappeared... probably a coincidence, but it added to the feel of there being something wrong here. We contacted the coast guard and they reported no other sightings.
