Orange ball of light across sky.

From the witnesses backyard, noticed a bright orange ball of light traveling east to west across the sky. Object was initially under the cloud ceiling, which was 4,600 feet at the time of event.

Size of object appeared to represent a size similar to that of a single large aircraft light. No other lights present in the area. The color remained a bright orange with edges that seemingly danced like a flame would.

Object maintained an even altitude and one witness confirms it was not a flare.

The length of the event was roughly two minutes and the light eventually disappeared behind cloud cover in the western sky.
