|This is the first I've seen a thing that looks this different from everything I've seen in the sky in 50 years.
This was as an off white lite, much larger than any incoming airplanes I've watched, with a domed-shaped, very red, light about and over the top of it, from side to side, but no red cast of light on the bottom. The red glow was more than twice the size of the off white area of light.
It was directly overhead when I first saw it, moving at about the same rate as I have seen thousands of airliners overhead here at around 5000 foot altitude, but no position lights were flashing. It moved from SE to NW.
The sky was clear, I could see a full field of stars from horizon to horizon. This object remained at the same rate of travel, then disappeared when it was 32 degrees from the horizon.
Given the day and hour, it may have been the sun playing off an airliner, but I've been watching the sky for 45 years in Michigan, and have never seen anything anywhere near what I just saw.
