Glowing orange brilliant orb seen over Bloomsburg, PA.

What I saw was a classic orange orb sighting. There was one of them, alone. It was bright orange, luminescent, sort of plasma like. Very bright. I saw it just above the tree lines, Northwest but it was really close -- hovering over the apt complex just above the trees.

It came closer to me, and I thought it might approach me but then it took of to the East, up into the sky past the clouds. The object made no sound but I heard an aircraft behind it. I thought at fist it might be a balloon or lantern, but it had a distinct pattern to its flight. Balloons and lanterns don't move in such an organized, determined direction. It clearly had intelligence.

Behind me was fairly clear. We live in a fairly rural area and when its dark it gets pretty dark. The odd thing is though that I seem to be missing some sense of time. I don't usually do that nor do I ever feel COMPELLED to go outside. I took photos but it was on one of those cheap cvs cameras so it will take a week to develop.
