initially seen while I was "indisposed" of.

I was pre-occupied in my bathroom when I seen out of the corner of my eye through an opened bathroom window an dull oranged colored circular ball of light slowly moving. It took me about 5 seconds to realize what I was seeing. When I was finished, I grabbed my camera and went outside for a better look. Since I live in an apartment building on the second floor this took me about 3 minutes to get outside and down to the corner of the building. When I got to the corner of the building I seen the object still traveling slowly in its original flight path in a south/easternly direction. Only this time it had changed color to a dull white and in both colors, it was slightly "fuzy." It moved at the same speed to a part of the sky and then stopped. It stayed there for a moment or two and then moved north to another portion of the sky. It was just above the cloud line. While it was moving I was making attempts at taking pictures of this craft. It got to another portion of the sky and then stopped again. It stayed there for a moment or two as if waiting for the clouds to conceal it. It then disappeared in a flash. I personally think I seen the craft shoot off to the east. it. I seen a special on Fox T.V. last week and it resembled one of the "plasma" ships I seen on the show.
