An orange stick shaped object paused at about 80 deg. and slowly went down over harbor area to the south.

I looked out my balcony and a large orange stick like thing was in the sky to the south. It was coming down and then stopped and hung there for a few seconds and then started to desend until it was lost in the city & harbor lights. It was say 18 inches at arms length and straight up and down. Very orange and very bright. It went very slowly. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Peter, This was told to me by one of my customers after I told her of my sighting. She is very reliable, but she didn't want to tell you herself. She was really concerned and very glad I brought it up. Hope you have had a chance to get some rest. Thanks again. ((two names deleted))
