|Fast moving oval bright orange/amber domed object at low altitude.
Standing on my west facing porch I observed a fast moving domed oval shape object with what appeared to be wings on either side. It was solid orange, almost amber, in color, bright in intensity and with no flashing lights. It did not leave a "tail or trail" like meteors do and I didn't hear any sound. I can’t approximate the altitude but know for sure that is was flying lower and much faster than a jet or airplane. It was traveling from west to east in a straight path. I tried to follow its path after it passed over my second story roof but by the time I got to a position where I should be able to see it, it was simply gone. The sky was incredibly clear. I am an amateur astronomer and practice nightly observation of the skies. This isn’t the first time I have observed an unusual object. In the last year I have witnessed four objects. Two, including this one, that were the orange/amber color and flying vertically. Two that were silver and cylindrical rather than oval and flying horizontally. All were flying at a low altitude.
