Location: Bristol, VA
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
Clear night sky with minimal clouds. I walked outside to my truck after picking our children up from a day with their grand parents and noticed a very bright light in the sky. Lower altitude, approx 5k to 7.5k. By 3.5 miles in the distance. Gold in color with a slight orange. The action that made this stand out the most was the fact that the object was perfectly stationary. There was no wavering or change in altitude.

Working as a firefighter I have been around helicopters on multiple occasions with emergency situations.

There was also no sound or flashing taillight. This lasted for rightly 15 and the light was gone. It seemed to just disappear.
