Bright glowing object in the night sky

Port Dover Ontario, Canada Time was 20:26\ date was May 20 2012

As I walked out the front door of our home I witnessed a silent bright “glowing” orange object in the ESE sky. The temp was about 65F and humidity was 26% so very little cloud and clear dark skies. As we live in a rural area and the Lake, Erie, is in our south about a mile away the sky is very dark. At first I thought of a helicopter, No way because it was silent.

The "orb" type object was silent and moving very fast towards the WNW. Bye the time I retrieved my camera and ran to the back door to shoot a photo the object was past my overhead. After the photo was taken, approx. 8sec, the object dimmed and then disappeared.

The object moved in a straight line in an arc angle of 180 degrees, in other words straight across the sky at a fairly low altitude.

The object was about the size of 1/8th of the full moon high in the sky. It was singular object, no trail or other lights were observed. Spooky to say the least.

I am a 55 year old male who always looks up to watch the sky and this is the first time I am able to say, I am amazed at what I saw and no reasonable explanation can do.
