|While running in the early morning, a friend and I witnessed an object flying at a low altitude emitting an orange glow behind it.
My friend and I were running this morning, 11/16/2012, the same route we run every Friday at that time. It was still dark, stars were out. Out of the corner of my eye I caught movement and a light. I looked up and some type of craft was passing in front of my line of sight. It was a dark half-circle shape I believe and had an orange glow behind it across the entire back of the object. The orange glow tailed out behind for a short distance and there seemed to be occasional sparks within the glow. The object continued past moving to the southwest, maintaining a constant altitude which was fairly low in the sky. Neither one of us heard any sound coming from the craft. It seemed to be moving at a high rate of speed but was easy to follow across the sky until we lost it over the hill. My friend’s initial thought was that it was a meteor, but I didn’t get that feeling at all. It was maintaining a constant altitude and seemed to be banking slightly to the! Southwest.
