Location: Silver Springs, NY
Shape: Sphere
Duration:10 min
in the S by SW sky 3 fingers held at arms lenght above the horizon. This orange light ball moved erratically to the west maintaining altitude. this lasted for about 6 minutes.

Unable to distinguish distance or size , but it was 3 or 4 times brighter then the brightest star out. It was an orange ball, I thought at first it was mars for a second but soon knew it couldn't be. it moved across the sky in a herky - jerky manner until it disappered behind some nearby trees blocking the further horizon.
