Posted: 9/13/2018
Location: Humble, TX
Shape: Light
Duration: ~2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Reddish orange light North of the Houston area, travelling South, stops for about 20 seconds, dims, brightens then vanishes.

Reddish orange light slowly travelling North to South at about a 65 to 70 degree inclination above the horizon where it stopped and stood still for about 20 seconds, dimmed, brightened, then disappeared.

The object was below the anvil of a large thunderstorm complex that was off to my North.

I'm an avid aircraft observer and live in the approach path's of Houston's two largest airports so I'm accustomed to watching planes fly over. This object looked, and behaved like no aircraft I have ever observed.

I checked Flightradar 24 and ADSB flight tracker and noted no aircraft in the area of the object.
