Duration:1o minutes
It was a bright,orangish,circular light that slowly and silently traveled east in the sky.

My husband and I were coming home after visiting some friends, shortly after midnight. When we got e on the highway I looked out the window and saw what appeared to be the space station. My first thoght was the coloring was wrong, the station is a bright white light,this was orangish in color. It also appeared to be a bit larger. Then I realized that despite all that,it was too late to be the station. The station always sets around ten o'clock, it was now after tweleve. About five minutes later we pulled in front of our home. Once the car stopped I pointed it out to my husband and then I noticed it was moving. Slowly,smoothly and silently it moved eastward through the night sky. We watched it from our car until it was ot of sight.
