A strange orange light big enough to be enough to be plane moved across the sky but soon stopped and soon phased outMy dad had us come out to look at this. We had called your hotline as well to report this. There was a bright dark orange/red light that was moving across the sky south to north. We were observing it from the west looking towards the east. It apeared to be a plane or a helicopter so it was about 4 times brighter than a star, However there was no noise while it moved across the sky about 45 degrees (favoring the north) than it stopped and than started and stopped a few times. After about a minute it started to get smaller as if it was moving further away from us. During this the light elongated into a line instead of a sphere which seemed to have a whitish bluish light with the orange. Than it completly vanished. It seemed to close to be a satalite, or space station.
