bright orange oval shape traveling slowly through sky near burtonsville and olney maryland at 1:30 am feb 1st 2012

Driving down New Hampshire ave toward Norbeck Rd, at one thirty in the morning I saw a bright yellow/ orange oval shape traveling in the sky above Blake High School. It was moving slowly, like a cloud almost.

I lost sight of it behind trees. When I turned on Norbeck rd I saw it again, moving slowly.

As I got to Norbeck and Layhill, it went in the direction of Olney/Rockville, slowed down and slightly dimmed before going behind trees again.

What I saw could have been emitting its own light, but it made the clouds around it shine very brightly. It looked like a piece of the sunset in the middle of a dark sky.
