Duration:3 seconds
Orange horse shoe shaped, silent, moved much faster then any aircraft, came almost to complete stop, then proceeded and vanished.

I decided to go to the church and school of which I work, to lower the flag to ½ staff at midnight on 9/11/2015. I did this so I wouldn’t have to get up so early since I work another job at night, and I wanted it up before everyone arrived in the morning.

As I was lowering the flag and looking up, something flew silently across the sky right above and slightly to the south from where I was standing moving from west to east. I was facing south. It was kind of horse shoe shaped, orange in color, and looked slightly like a sparkler.

Normally, I would have thought it was just a meteor however, it almost came to a complete stop, then went slightly further east, and then vanished.

It made me feel kind of creepy and I got the hell out of there.

That’s about it! I’ve seen comets, meteors, and satellites all of my life but nothing that stopped and then proceeded on.
