Location: Napa, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:3-5 minutes
Bright orange light drifted across the sky.

The incident took place at roughly 7:30-8pm, well after dark, while I was taking out the trash at my apartment complex. A bright orange light in the Southeast sky caught my attention. It seemed pretty far away and moved very slowly. There was no noise and no blinking lights as on an aircraft. It seemed to move too slowly for an aircraft. It gradually drifted Northward and after a couple minutes it changed course and moved toward the East as it dimmed. It then faded away.

I managed to get a pair of binoculars and it was simply a single orange light with a constant intensity and no other lights, blinking or otherwise. No trail was left. The sky was mostly clear with just a few cirrus clouds and no moon.

An almost identical light was seen a few years ago by myself that moved in a similar fashion, but in the opposite direction. I had reported that sighting as well on this site. I’m interested if anyone else saw this light or if there is some explanation for what I have seen, now twice.
