Ok, this is NOT an April fools joke. At 3:45 this morning the sky was crystal clear, looking south/ SW (about 210 degrees) we saw an orange glow just above the tree tops. At first I thought it was the planet mars but realized it was moving upwards in the sky. Very slow at first then noticeably faster. We watched for at least 2 minutes then it disappeared and you could hear the thrust like a rocket engine after. I know Wallops Island, VA, has launches that can occasionally be seen from here. Anyways I have been searching the internet and can't find anything about a launch or any reports. Very strange.
