Duration:3 minutes
Bright orange dot of light hovering and moving slowly in the sky.

On February 26th, 2015, at 12:30 AM, my friend accompanies me on a dog walk, as I get out of late. I noticed a bright orange light, too orange to be a planet, in the sky. Because it was moving slowly we agreed it was not a planet or meteorite.

I asked him, is that an airplane? He answered no, if it was an airplane it appears it would be falling. It began to get slightly brighter and continued moving slowly. Too slow to be an airplane, or helicopter, completely silent and nothing like we've both ever seen before.

My friend noted a triangular shape.

This lasted a total of maybe three minutes. Then, it began to get dimmer in brightness. Then within a 5-10 second time span, it began to appear to blink, getting smaller and then completely disappeared.

We both do not take drugs, I am college educated and hold a Bachelor's degree, and have up until this point been very skeptical. My friend is healthy, intelligent and well-read and reasonable and both of us do not have mental illness(s).
