I woke up in the night and went to the kitchen for a drink of water.
I happend to look out the window and saw a orange color disc over the pine trees to our west. It was about the size of a silver dollar held at arm's length away. Could not tell how far away it was. The color looked orange like the sun when it rising or setting on the horizon but was not as bright.
I woke up my husband and he obsereved the same.
The object after just being still for some time then shot straight up and was gone.
It did not leave any visible trail and we did not see it again. Also the sky was clear and the stars were very bright as they always are in this rural area.
