Shape: Changing
Duration:40 minutes
A colorful object was seen from a far distance. It gave off red, then orange. then yellowish white light. have pictures

It is 11 pm and I just watched the most unusual.

At 10.20, I looked out and saw this big, big reddish half moon right over the monument and was surprised to see that color. A big Moon that color at this time of year? So late at night? I was fascinated. I watched it and it turned orange, but it stayed in the same position. I became curious, kept on watching for the next 40 minutes. I went outside and took pictures, no idea if anything came out. I took Tosca for a walk, kept on watching it. It seemed like clouds went in front or across it (even so it is a cloudless night). the shape changed, it became rounder and turned into something like an apple. The color had changed to a yellowish white. Then the shape changed to half again and around 10.50 it started to fade away, became a thin line, by 11 is was all gone. For 40 minutes it never moved from the position in the sky, it stayed right over the White House.
