Luminous orange object moving across the night sky over Wellesley Island State Park

Camping at Wellesley Island State Park on 8/25/2011 at approximately 9:30pm my friend and I were sitting around the campfire. It was a clear night with many stars out.

From the west I noticed a large circular object that appeared bright orange in the distance, heading in our direction. As it got closer my friend and I immediately noted there was no sound, no flashing lights, just a large luminous orange ball. The object seemed to be moving effortlessly in a straight line across the sky at about the height of a helicopter.

It passed over our heads, with no other distinct shape, but circular. It quickly disappeared traveling eastward.

The next night, 8/26/2011 our wives joined us at the campsite. That evening at approximately 10:00 pm we again noticed this orange circular object in the sky. Except this time, it was traveling straight up the river heading northeast. At about the same height just further away from us.
