Orange orb, bright like flickering fire and hovering.

Orange orb, BRIGHT like flickering fire. It hovered in place, then moved very slowly to the north, then stopped and hovered some more and slowly faded out and disappeared over the course of about 30-35 seconds.

I wish I would have had time to shoot it with my DSLR but at night shooting a bright object is almost impossible. I did shoot video with my phone but it's not very useful.

All I can tell you is that it wasn't an aircraft, meteor, drone or Chinese lantern. It was well above the clouds, extremely bright, intelligently controlled and totally silent. Absolutely bizarre! No doubt a UFO by definition.

The only thing the video I shot on my phone really captures is my amazement and lots of cursing from me.
