Shape: Sphere
Duration:2 minutes
Glowing orange sphere seen by 2 of us headed from north to south in Hagerstown, MD.

This evening, at approximately 22:10, my wife noticed an orange sphere very slowly moving over the house from our backyard. She called me out to take a look. '

The object was a glowing orange (not like a Chinese lantern as I have seen those). The object had no blinking to it. As for size, we would say it was maybe 8-10 times the size of a star to the naked eye. The object was moving from north to south as we were facing southeast.

It only lasted approximately two minutes total in view and simply faded out of sight and we lost sight of it. We moved to the front of the home to see if we could find it again to no avail.

We waited 15 minutes or so and kept looking for it to reappear although it never did. This was something neither of us had ever seen.

My wife is a 46 year old housewife and I’m a 50 year old program director. In all our years, THIS we couldn’t explain.
