I noticed in the sky above me, a stationary orange ball that seemed to be glowing with a slight flicker.

On August 8th, approximately 9:30 pm, I was driving home. I was only about a mile from my house in Eldridge, MO.

I noticed in the sky above me, an orange ball that seemed to be glowing with a slight flicker.

It was stationary and did not seem to be moving other than an occasional flicker. I pretty much came to a complete stop on the road to watch it. I watched it for about 10 seconds, then it began to move higher and as it did so, it quickly decreased in size and disappeared.

I have never seen anything like this before. Very unusual and definitely ORANGE! It seemed to be close like when you see a small plane flying above.

It only took about 3 seconds for it to disappear into the sky. You could tell it was traveling because it quickly but gradually decreased in size as it moved away.
