Red-Orange light seen from the University of Delaware campus

While walking back form class this evening, I noticed a bright, red-orange light in the south sky travelling north.

At first I though the light was an airplane, but there were no flashing lights on the craft.

After about two minutes of watching the light, it dimmed to a barely visible white dot and appeared to start travelling toward the east.

It disappeared from my line of sight (some buildings were blocking the way), and I did not make the effort to move and look for it again.

((NUFORC Note: Possible sighting of an aircraft, we suspect. PD))
