Location: Arcata, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
1 large orange light, round in shape moving SW slowly & inconsistantly.

My boyfriend and I were watching the sunset in a mostly cloudy sky from Luffenholtz Beach when we noticed a large, circular bright light (organge/yellow in color)in the southwestern sky. This was after the sun had gone down and only a little glow was left peeking through the clouds (the light was located quite seperate from the area in which the sun was setting). The light was moving slowly, down and slightly west, not constant in speed or direction. It was way too large to be an airplane & was unlike any object either of us have witnessed before.
