Location: Anchorage, AK
Shape: Light
Duration:13 minutes
Bright Orange light moving slowly across the sky

I looked up in the sky and saw a bright orange object moving farther out than where airplanes would fly, east to west at about 1/4 of the speed of a satellite. About the magnitude of Venus but maybe as big as 1 1/2 venus's, it was visible for about 11 minutes then it went stationary for about 2 minutes then disappeared. Altogether it moved about a fifth of the sky horizon to horizon.

The whole time i watched it i had a "very" nervous feeling even though it was so far away.
