Location: Selinsgrove, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Very small but bright (equal in luminosity to polaris) red/orange flickering light, appeared to resemble a burning out solid rocket.

Orange/red bright and decreasing in luminosity as flickering (seemed to be burning out). Observed in ESE sky, appeared to be at extremely high altitude.

Observed from my residence, from front yard. There is an airport nearby, but this occurence was moving away from the airport, and resembled rocket/missile exhaust from a solid fuel source, as it flickered and waned in luminosity. Estimated altitude was at least 100, 000 feet. No audible sound heard.
