Orange orb over Lahaina on July 4th

Waiting for the fireworks display to start at the Lahaina harbor, my kids and I saw a bright orange orb hovering overhead. At first I thought it might be a flare, the sky was still bright as the sun was just setting.

The orb stayed stationary for about a minute then disappeared behind a cloud. It was obviously not a flare as its altitude was far above the cloud.

My three daughters and wife all saw it.
