|Bright orange object in the eastern sky.
Object appeared due east of my location at about 20 degrees above horizon. The object was semi-circular on the bottom with a low pyramid shape on top. I watched it for about 2 minutes as it became a bright orange color and seemed to grow larger. It then quickly receded with no apparent movement. I assume that it either was moving directly toward me or away from me which would explain the apparent stilloness of it.
