Orange light over Kingsford, MI

On 2/18/2008 at around 7:45PM I was shoveling snow when I noticed a bright light coming towards me from the SW. I thought it was a small airplane with its landing light on. I would estimate it was 1000-2000 feet in the air and the light was bright orange like that of a city street light. I thought the color was a bit odd for an airplane and I watched it come closer listening for the sound of its engine. I did not hear any sound and it seemed to gain a little altitude. It then slowed to a stop almost overhead and then I thought this can’t be a normal aircraft. I watched it not wanting to miss anything that it might do but I also wanted to film it. I ran to the house to get my video camera and filmed it from our deck. About that time it started to head due south and was the size of a large star. It continued until it faded out over the town of Aurora, WI. I managed to get the object on film but it is VERY shaky.
