|My son called excitedly from the front porch last night just after dark, while he let the dogs out. He said, Mom you have to see this!!! I ran out barefooted in the cold, and saw a slow moving orange light. We could not see any sign of the craft that the light was emanating from. It was travelling east to west fairly slowly.
It did not blink, just glowed orange. It moved about the same speed as a satellite, but it appeared closer than a satellite would normally be seen. Size was similar to holding up a nickel at arms length. It moved east to west for about 2 minutes, then curved sharply to head south.
I ran in to get the camera, and of course by the time I got back it had disappeared. We could not hear an engine or any kind of noise that might be associated with a flying craft of some sort. There was a little traffic noise, so itís possible we might have missed it. Made for an exciting evening ( almost anything would liven up Kanab in the winter!!!)
