Orange glowing orb, Wasilla, Alaska.

I was traveling in my car westbound on Spruce Road heading home from work. At 12:36 a.m., I witnessed an orange glowing orb about 50 feet above the treetops and approximately 100 yards ahead crossing the road from north to south. When I reached the point of the object's crossing, I stopped and exited the vehicle. I continued to observe the object while standing in the middle of the road (There was no other vehicular traffic}.

By this time the object was stationary, hovering at approximately 100 feet in altitude and perhaps 50-70 yards south of the road. There was no sound emanating from the object. As it hovered, it began to move in a slow, tight, circling maneuver. As it exhibited this circling motion, I observed a bluish-white light pulsating either from within the orange orb or on it. The object then began to slowly move to the southwest, maintaining it's altitude and disappeared from my line of sight behind the tree line.

Judging from the object's distance and altitude, I approximate it's size to be that of a small compact automobile. This was the apparent size of the glowing light, it was difficult to ascertain whether it was actually a solid object. At 12:39 a.m I entered my vehicle and proceeded home with no further incident.
