silver orange craft clearly seen..

i rent a house in ocean bay park on fire island. it was monday night at about 11pm. my wife and i were sitting on the 2nd story deck looking south towards the ocean. it was partly cloudy. we were watching the airplanes in the sky pop in and out of the clouds. then we saw a silver-orange round craft travel parallel to fire island in a east to west direction. it was about a mile offshore, and about 6000 feet above the ground. it traveled a little slower than the propellor planes. this was no plane, had no strobe lights, and glowed silver orange.
