Me and my brother were leaving thanksgiving dinner, I was in my car and my brother stared pointing up, I got out and saw a very bright orange light, it was rather close, about the height a helicopter would fly. It was not blinking, but just a stale light. It was moving at a somewhat fast speed, but I managed to get 2 pictures of it. I got 3 other family members to come out and see it. By the time they got there it was nearly out of sight. We watched it until it was fully out of sight. It didn't travel up, but away.
