Duration:1 minute
I saw a large orange object slowly moving over my apartment building.

From my 3rd floor balcony facing West I saw a large orange object slowly moving in a straight line in a NE direction over my apartment building.

I assumed that it was a stray firework at first, but it was way too big and moving too slowly to be a firework, plane or satellite.

My background: I am a 50ish male, college educated, no military service.
