Location: Orland, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
Large bright yellow-orange light appeared for 3 minutes and then disappeared completely

When I went outside to have a cigarette, I noticed a bright yellow-orange light in the sky south of me. I estimate that it was anywhere from 5 to 10 miles away from me and just slightly above the line of trees about a half mile south of me. It was a very large, non-flashing light and appeared to be moving slowly in a northeast direction.

I ran inside for my binoculars and one of my sons (so there would be another witness to what I was seeing). As we watched, the light began traveling still slowly but more directly east. At that time, the light began to fade and then went out.

We continued to look for it, and we saw a faint glow of the light appear before it went out altogether.
