Bright orange orb near west side reservoir.

I live in the west side of Danbury near the New York border. I noticed a bright orange light through my living room window. It was low in the sky behind the trees to the north of my house.

I went out side and observed the object. It was about the size of a full moon. It was bright orange. It was hovering in the sky to the north of my house behind a grove of trees, which were bare of leaves as spring has not come yet and the trees are still without leaves.

The object hovered for 10 to 15 seconds and then moved off to the east. The object made no sound. Considering the size of the object it had to be fairly close to me, otherwise it would have to be truly huge.

The fact that it made no sound, and the way it moved convinces me it was neither a plane nor a helicopter.
