Shape: Changing
Bright slow moving orange light over Mayfield Hts.

Saw this bright orange light traveling from NW to SE, moving very slowly. It wasn't a plane, no flashing lights or beacons.

Thought it might be one of those fire floating lanterns, but it was too big for that. After a minute of viewing it was almost overhead and the brightness of the object would waver, gradually getting smaller and less bright.

Could not make out a defined shape. After a few minutes viewing it passed into a cloud, probably around an altitude of 5000-7000 feet (I know cloud formations, relative heights). A mystery.
