|Orange Red light traveling from west to east very slowly, then went straight up
I was sitting on my patio this evening, which faces the North. I watched a large orange-red oval shaped object traveling very slowly from west to east. It was bright and very noticeable. It did not have any strobe lights did not blink at all and had no noise. After watching it for approximately 10 minutes, it went straight up into the sky and disappeared. I contacted the local sheriff's department, and spoke with a deputy. He said he would step outside and look, however he stated we do not make reports to the FAA or anywhere else. I then contacted the Ontario International Airport which is within 20 minutes of my home, east of my home town. After seeing this object I noticed a jet taking off from Ontario, as some jets travel over my City on there way to the Burbank Airport or elsewhere. I spoke with a gentleman, an air traffic controller in the Ontario Tower. He said the pilot had not reported anything to him, however the pilot may have reported it down the line. I have two pilots in my family, I have flown in both small planes and jets. This is not something I could identify.
