A very large object, looking like a 50s Sci Fi Saucer shape with very sharp, distinct shape, but looking like a fire over Military Base

Normally I sleep very well, but my normally calm Labrador woke me and asked to go out at 11:59 on about August 1st, 2013. It was a no breeze evening with stars in the night sky. In the direction of Military Base Gagetown was a basketball size (bigger than a large setting sun) object. It looked like a perfect, saucer shape -- large round bottom with a dome on the top - as one would see in a fifties Sci Fi film. The lines were very crisp and defined. But unlike the silver shapes in the films - this was as if it was a fire - - within the lines. The fire like light was moving as it would within a fireplace - - but staying within the perfect lines of the object.

I would guess that it was several miles from where I saw it -- if it were over head it would be perhaps several football fields large.

There was absolutely no noise. My dog was riveted looking towards the horizen where it hovered.

Finally - after twenty minutes it lowered towards the earth and then disappeared.

Normally with a fire - and I have seen a number in my life - there would be a connection between the horizon and the upper most part -- but it would be "jagged" shape. In this case there was no connection between the object and the ground - there was an amount of black space beneath it till it went down.

I have seen balloons and lanterns - -this was not what this was as they are much smaller than this huge object.

I am not normally interested in this sort of phenomena - but could not take my eyes off of it - nor could the dog.

what was it? I have no idea. In college and with my family's Hollywood, special effects back ground I would say it could have been a Laser, 3-D projection???? Something the military was doing with Lasers? But why would they be doing this? My background is a Ph.D. in psychology, advanced nine years of work at an institute and privately training in Carl Jung's work - 40 years of formal meditation training and teaching formal meditation. I have worked in Forensics, supervised psychiatrists - and feel I am a fairly good observer. My mother, a skeptic on most things, claimed to have seen a large saucer in 1947 abouts - which was seen by half of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and in the Pittsburgh papers. My grandfather's close friend was Harry S. Truman, who on either side of my birth in July of 1952 had to assure the public that the UFOs over Washington were not something to be afraid of. But I personally have not had interest in this - and when I had an opportunity in the early nineties to work with John Mack, M.D - and I did interview some of the contactee/abductees - - although I felt they had real, valid experiences - - I did not feel drawn to work with the phenomena as I was working with death and dying at the! time. So this was a surprise - -and I kept saying to my dog - "Well - it could not be a UFO - they are not golden, fire like this is - - - " - - - It was only a few days later that I googled it and found that there are something called "Plasma objects" that I realized that might be what I saw.
