It was very fast,round,with a orange/yellowish clow & very bright

I live in Glenburn,Maine (about 8 miles from Bangor,Maine in the country) I got home tonight about 8pm it was dark so I thought I'd to see if Mars was still visible. I love the stars and planets. I got our towels to sit on ,my book,flashlight (well it I s the country,and lot of wolfs been seen in the area),and binoculars. I sat and saw the speed of a plane,and kept look up while I tried to find the big dipper ,and then I saw it right away.

It was round,tiny for being so far away.Orange/yellowish glow,very fast,and very bright. Its speed was very fast it flew over the sky from east to west in no time.I watched till it was no longer in sight.

((NUFORC Note: We do not understand how a "very fast" object can be visible for 10-15 minutes. We will correspond with the witness. PD))
