Shape: Sphere
Duration:15 seconds
An orange ball making two opposite 45 degree angle turns crosses the sky to the south in 5 - 7 seconds.

Circling my neighborhood in the wee hours, about 3:30 am, as I walked to the west on the other side of my sub-division, I looked to the NW where I had an unobstructed 120 degree view of the sky.

There I saw an orange ball about the size of number four shot held at arm's length motionless in a two o'clock po sition. It remained at rest for five or so seconds.

It suddenly began to move to the south to a two o'clock position covering the 120 degrees of sky in 5 - 7 seconds. During that time it made two opposite 45 degree abrupt turns before disappearing behind the houses to my southern view. The whole incident lasted 15 seconds or so. The color of the object was orange like the orange of the University of Texas and the color remained the same during the entire incident. This occurred on a Saturday morning but I do not remember which Saturday in July it was. It appeared to be several miles away and several thousand feet in altitude based on my experience viewing aircraft. There was no sound associated with the sighting.
