Shape: Sphere
Duration:5 minutes
Orange Orb With Odd Flightpath In Sky.

Saw unidentified orange spherical object, first witnessed at 2:48 in far southeastern sky. Watched it maintain a natural orbit until 2:51, when it reached the far northeastern sky.

Object started to curve west, then wander for for a bit, before it faded out just west of Neptune from my viewpoint at 2:53 AM, flaring about two or three times before it faded.

It was bright enough to capture on phone camera.
