Shape: Circle
Duration: 2 minutes
An orange object floated at low level and slow from SSE to NNW.

An object that I first thought was a “Chinese Lantern” floated from SSE to NNW. It looked like an orange glow or fire at the base of its circular shape. My wife and I discussed whether or not it was a hot air balloon but it was faster than what we thought a balloon would travel. It certainly appeared lower than a satellite or shooting star and slower.
