I was in my lounge chair sitting outside in my backyard looking up at the stars when a bright glow appeared through the trees. When it came into full view, it was an orange/reddish-orange, glowing, egg-shaped, somewhat transparent orb floating and moving NW to the S/SW. I called my wife to come outside and as soon as she saw it she knew it was different...not a plane, helicopter, satellite, etc.! We watched this fiery orange sphere, about a 1000 ft. in the sky, move to the S/SW. it seemed to move somewhat slowly, but in reality moved fast for the distance it traveled. I grabbed the binoculars and gave them to my wife, who was staring at the object with her mouth wide-open. She said the large orb was emitting light; an orange/red glow which made it look like it was on fire, but it WAS not. There was no sound as it moved overhead or as it moved away and then just disappeared.
