Location: Reading, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Brillant Orange glow lasting for minutes

I steeped out on my back porch to smoke a cigarette and looking across the sky to the NW, I noticed an unusually bright orange light hanging in the sky several miles away.

Being in aviation over half my life, my first thought was an airplane reflecting the setting sun. I was using a power line as a reference, I watched the light drop below the power line. It then moved quickly to the East and faded out.

Within a few seconds, it reappeared and was a little brighter this time. The light continued in an Eastern direction for about 15 seconds before completly fading away.

During this sighting, there were no noises associated with normal aircraft activity.
