Duration:20 seconds
dark orange light in northern sky moves forward then away and drops quickly out of sight

i was facing north, looking at the big dipper. i saw a red light that looked like it was about the height of a commercial airliner, but the size of 2 airliners' lights. it was headed south. i said to my two fellow observes, 'hey, look!', and pointed to the fireball/light that i saw. when i first saw it, it looked like it was traveling toward us, but by the time i alerted my fellow observes, it was stationary. when they looked at it, it began to travel northwards (away from us). and it began to dim. i lost track of it, but my fellow observes noted that it appeared to burn out / get darker and flicker / pulse.
