Location: Monee, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Small, orange light spotted on a back drop of clouds, then diminished and disappeared.

Right around 23:30 as my fiance and I were walking out to her car, we observed an orange ball of light in the eastern skyline. The sky to the east was completely enveloped in clouds, and no stars or other lights were visible that night. I can't be sure exactly of the size of the object, it was clearly far away as it only appeared to be a quarter inch speck of light. The light remained perfectly stable, not moving at all, although it flickered rapidly. After maybe a minute or two, the light got smaller in a linear fashion, until it was a speck, then disappeared.
