A light in the sky similiar to Haley's comet during sunset 10/26/04 Tuesday evening around 18:00 hours

This was seen during sunset as I drove from Monmouth to Lewiston on rt 202. I would say it was in the South West sky. It was similiar to haleys comet when I saw that only it was gleaming orange with the sun setting. It did not appear to be moving. If it was it was very slow unnoticeable. From a distance at times it looked like a huge cessna airplane but then more like a comet. My daughter noticed this first, we drove back to get our camera and binoculars and lost sighting in the darker sky at sunset. It was very beautiful along with the full moon that night.

((NUFORC Note: Star?? PD))
