Circular amber light seen towards to the NW; no sound

Just past midnight on Sunday, August 11, 2013, seven individuals (6 male, 1 female), witnessed a circular shape towards the NW direction on the town line of Amherst, Maine and Township 28, Maine.

The shape was quite large and extremely bright. Amber/copper-like color with white at times. It was so bright that it was casting a bright reflection on the lake where our camp is located. Shape existed for approximately 5 minutes before disappearing.

Our group was outdoors to witness meteors to the north when this object appeared in the northwest. It appeared to be just above the tree tops.

Knowing my surroundings, I used Google Maps and confirmed this object was no more than 1/3 of a mile from our location.

This object appeared to remain stationary most of the time before moving to the north, then disappeared. No sound could be heard.
