Shape: Sphere
Duration:1 minute
Silent orange/red illuminated jagged spherical object moved across the sky and disappeared

Brightly illuminated orange/red moving light. Not exactly spherical in nature; had a somewhat jagged (possibly starlike) shape to it. Appeared just above the trees in a large subdivision in Mandeville, LA.

The object was far brighter than any stars in the sky and moved in a straight line across the sky. The object appeared to have bright white lights that illuminated the sky above it. There was no sound. Completely silent.

The object flickered back and forth between extremely bright and just bright. Then, it continued along its linear path and began to dim. The naked eye could still make out the outline of the object but it no longer was illuminated.

We followed the object with our eyes until it appeared to disappear among the cloud cover or maybe just disappeared altogether.
