No of observers: 2

Location: Sandpoint, ID, USA

Characteristics: Aircraft nearby

Object came in from west to east below approx 500' elevation cloud cover, I thought it was a meteorite, so hollered at significant other to come watch, it was descending gradually at very high rate of Speed.

Completly silent the orange ball looked to have round or oval object above it and moving just at edge over cloud/fog cover.

Then it slowed and turned northeast then turned east again. Then it almost did a left turn instantly heading north and increased speed out of sight while remaining completely silent.

I heard two jets come from east and north which both sounded like they continued south at high speed. 30 minutes later, I can hear jets at high altitude above cloud cover.
