Bright orange orb travels and disappears.

Wife and I where driving eastbound on Arrowood Rd towards Walmart when we looked towards the sky and the thin crescent moon. Up in the sky there was an orange glowing dot that seemed to get bigger and bigger.

I asked my wife if it looked like an airplane and she said yes it then took her words back as we continued to drive. The ball moved westbound and it looked like a faraway ball of fire.

As the light grew bigger we both realized it wasnt a recognizable aircraft. I asked my wife to record as we attempted to make a U-turn on the boulevard to keep watching and hopefully record it.

As we stopped, the ball suddenly disappeared out of the sky. We where both skeptical about what we saw as it was not common.
