Reported: 2006-01-06 07:04 Pacific
Duration: 1 hour
No of observers: 2

Location: Crosslake, ME, USA

Shape: Fireball

Dull orange ball/disc hovered over camps across the lake. Thought was a sodium light, or reflection until it moved up to about 50-100 feet above the camps south of us.

It moved NE towards our camp. It came out over middle of the snow covered lake, stopped and silently stood still about 20-25 ft over the lake. The lake is frozen and has three feet of soft un marked. snow on it.\

We turned the lights out when it moved and watched with binoculars, to me it looked like Saturn/or a orange pizza.

We opened the window to make sure it was not a reflection on the glass.

I took a "1 million "candle power spotlight and flashed towards it. It didn't move,as I turned away to go outside it just disappeared.
