Bright orange glowing stationary object

I observed a glowing orange object in the clear night sky. I was 14 and an avid amateur astronomer, taking after my dad. I saw an unusually bright object in the sky not far from URSA major. It was brighter than Venus and color was definately orangish. It was stationary as I carried water buckets to the barn for the calves on our farm. I called my sister to come and see it. I pointed it out to her and we noted the objects specific location.

We continued our farm chores and I looked up in its direction a few minutes later but discovered that it had moved to another fixed spot about 30 degrees away in the sky. It was still of the same intensity.

A few minutes later I looked for it but it was gone. It did not move during any of my observations, but always appeared stationary.

Later that evening, I placed a mark on my sky charts to its exact locations, but I never observed it again.

I especailly enjoyed tonights Jeff Rense with the two gentlemen from North Dakota. I found their story very sincere and honest.
