Duration:<3 seconds
Red/Orange light seen in Cherrytown

I was standing on the back deck looking at the stars. Approximately 600 feet behind my house is a ridge and trees. Behind the trees is a large field. As I was standing there, I saw a bright orange/red ball of light appear above the trees, travel rapidly in a wavy motion, then disappear behind the tree line.

There are no lights or houses on this small ridge. I would estimate that the light was no farther than 750-800 feet away from my house. I would say that the light itself would be about the size of a softball judging from the distance it was from the house.
