Duration:6-8 seconds
Southeast Michigan, orange light, grew held still and then vanished with little trace.

Object had medium-dark orange light that didnt seem to shine far. Southwest to where I was in a large, very large light illuminated. The shaped seemed to swell or enlarge in equal proportions-then the light stopped completely.Next the craft appeared to go very dim and looked very distant. Like a distant star. Then as we watched it just faded into nothing, as if moving farther away. For a split second I thought it was a shooting star that wasnt burning out, but then i realized it couldnt be because it didnt move. Then i thought it was a firework or a wise guy shot a flare, but then as it grew you could see an object inside it. By the way it dissapated it wasnt anything that was ignited. Certainly was not helicopter, plane, or jet. They just cant and dont move like that.
