|Large reddish orange craft moving SW at fast rate of speed. Heard roaring almost like engine. Noisy neighborhood though.
I stepped outside to look for meteors, and looked about 45 degrees SW towards the moon and saw a bright red, almost life fire from a night air balloon, moving across the sky very fast. The lights we're not flashing or changing colors, but were like a glowing red and orange.
The glowing area was close enough near the moon that it appeared to be half the size of the moon. It was probably no more than 5 miles away. I could hear a humming or rotary sound like an airship of some kind. But it moved across the sky towards to the SW and was gone from wight within 20 to 30 seconds.
I missed about 10 when seconds, when I ran inside like an idiot to tell my son.
