|A bright orange light moving slowly across the sky for 2-3 minutes.
I live in Jackson County in Michigan and was working lastnight (July 29th, 2012) on Wamplers Lake when I was locking the sliding glass door & noticed a bright orange light that was slowly moving across the lake in the direction of where I was.
I stepped outside and watched it for about 2 minutes moving in the direction that I was at over the lake, although I couldn't see a shape only the lights. It wasn't a flourescent colored light but more of a pumking color orange light.
At first I only noticed one bright light but as it was getting closer I did see a much smaller light on the right side. I was watching it out of curiosity mostly because I hadnt ever seen a orange light from an airplane plus it was moving quite slowly so it struck me as unusual.
My camera was right behind me on a small table so I stepped back about 2 feet to grab my camera. When I turned back towards the sliding glass door, I could barely see the light and it was ALL the way back over to where I originally noticed it, basically on the other side of the lake where I first noticed it. I did snap two shots however.
Within about 2-3 seconds, the light was gone. It took a little more than 2 minutes for it to get as close as it did and within seconds it was where it started from, or atleast from where I first noticed it. I'm wondering if anybody seen anything like this from lastnight? I did take a picture but couldnt see anything after I went back to review the shot. I zoomed in to 16x and was able to notice a dim blue light in the sky where the object was at.
