Location: Charlottesville, VA
Shape: Light
Duration:7 minutes
Bright orangish-reddish light, not flashing, traveling through the sky and then disappeared completely.

On a very clear night, my roomate and I were on our back porch looking south. We saw a strange orange-redish light that was moving very slowly perpendicular to the trees.

It was hard to tell if it had any tail at all. It continued moving up and then slowly veered off the the left. As it continued moving upwards, it began to get dimmer.

After a period of about a minute or so, it became smaller and smaller until it completely disappeared.

Many planes flew by in the area and the oject was moving much slower than the planes and had no flashing lights.

It seemed to disappear right above a star, but the star could have been Venus too?
