Reddish orange light in the sky over Lake George.

A little after 9pm on August 4th, we were walking up (north) Canada Street in Lake George Village, when my wife saw a strange orange object in the sky. We were with another couple and they stopped and looked as well. I had seen it move slightly south, it was in the eastern sky and I would estimate that it was over the lake and below cloud level, though it was a mostly cloudless night. It then appeared to stay in one spot. It was definitely orange/orange reddish, and it appear to me to be flickering or pulsating. I was waiting for it to move. At first I thought it was a possible firework or something, then perhaps a plane. But when it wasn’t moving, I knew it wasn’t a plane. Then it looked as if it was rising as it was getting smaller, than disappeared. The whole episode last for roughly 3 minutes.

As we were watching, another group stopped and looked and observed for a minute with one guy commenting it was a UFO.

I also have a picture of the object that I emailed to Peter Davenport.
