Location: Brainard (6 mi. E of; on Hwy. 92), NE
Shape: Unknown
Duration:3-5 minutes
Orange cresent object with trail moving northwest to southwest..no sound, no decent 2-3 min across sky

On my way to work on hwy 92 6 miles east of brainard at 5:28am. I stopped my car and got out when I saw an object coming from east-northeast moving west-southwest. It was glowing orange in a cresent shape the size of my fist..void/dark behind the cresent shape then coming back together forming a orange trail. At first I thought it was an airplane with a bad engine. Then I thought it could be a very large asteroid. However it moved across the sky without desending,completely silent, taking about 2-3 minutes to cross the sky... horizon to horizon.
