amber colored object,shaped like a kitchen match,still, no movement,faded away.

I am a graphic designer & sign painter, I am very aware of my surroundings, it's my job.

Driving home late on the 4th after 11pm in a rural area, mountains all over, I saw an amber colored object sitting still in the western sky.

I pulled over. The object was shaped like a kitchen match. It was horizontal & very still. I could not believe what I was seeing! No noise, no movement, just there. Watched it for 5 minutes, & then it slowly faded out of sight like a dimmer switch was used. I had a cell phone, but I never got it out to take a picture. It just never crossed my mind.
