I was painting my house and was on a step ladder about 6 ft high and saw an orange light that looked like it was rotating vertically. It was moving extremely fast and there was no noise whatsoever. The object looked like it was at low altitude and as soon as I looked at it it diss appeared. I only saw it for about 3 seconds and it was gone. I've never seen anything move so fast. A bout 10 minutes later there were helicopters in the area. I live very close to Andrews AFB and planes and helicopters every day but this was unusual. Again I only saw this thing for a split second but that was the fastest thing I've ever seen and it just disappeared (no clouds).
