Location: Dunbar, WV
Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
Orange light over Charleston, WV area

Around 22:00, me and my girlfriend were on our front steps and I noticed out of the corner of my eye a light in the sky. I live under a flight path of our major airport in the area, so I am very familiar with the lights on aircraft because the aircraft are generally low altitude when they reach my home due to my close proximity to the airport. This light was different though because it was bright orange and pulsating, moving in a southwesterly direction. No landing lights or anti-collision lights could be seen. The object then moved out of view behind the trees and homes in my neighborhood.

About 10 minutes later i noticed the same? craft moving again in the same southwesterly direction but in a little different spot in the sky. At this point the object was quite a bit closer and it was easily distinguishable from a normal aircraft. The object was about the size of an apple held at arm's length. The craft continued on until disappearing over the mountains to th! e southwest.
