Location: Boca Raton, FL
Shape: Circle
Solid orange round light floated across sky for 30 seconds then disappeared (totally unlike airplane lights. It was fairly close, too,)

Solid Orange ball of light flying southeast (opposite direction from airplane approaching Boca airport) Altitude approx 2,000 FT. (It seemed to be a couple miles away from my vantage point) Object was silent and appeared to be travelling exact opposite as a nearby plane which had the usual flashing multi-color lights. I didn't see any stars in sky due to cloudcover.

After 30 seconds it just dissappeared completely and suddenly I took photo and it appears as solid perfect round light in photo.

Size was about 1/5 of what a full moon is. It wasn't extremely bright, and didn't flash or change speed...just glided above tree line for what looked like a mile then vanished (as if turned off by a light switch)
