Location: Fishkill, NY
Shape: Sphere
Duration:3 minutes
Orange glowing object stationary in sky over Beacon, Newburgh, NY.

Spotted a reddish orange light Due West over Newburgh NY area as I was driving down my street. Somewhat stationary. Glowed with slight pulse.

When I jumped out of my truck as I parked in my driveway I had to run down the street to see between the trees. It was quite high up. I had seen it from maybe 2 plus minutes then the red glow faded from a round shape, to a triangle shape, with 3 sections like looking at an airplane prop. To a dull orange then went out. If I had to draw a comparison the light looked like a flare, a highway flare glow. Maybe it was a balloon with a flare attached, of a parachute flare but I never seen one this high in the sky as I am familiar with flares. Witnessed by my friend in the truck. I know aircraft, I know meteors, this was something odd. No time to take a photo.
