Large orange ball over rhode island

This is the second time this month I saw a bright orange ball about as big as a full moon moving at airplane height (5-10,000 ft.) from west to east.

I am a retired psychologist and was sitting facing south with my wife on sunday 10/21/12 just before midnight. I was alone for the 10/06/12 siting.

It was silent and moving at a steady speed (about 160k/hr. according to a 8/17/12 siting by a airtraffic controller who reported his siting in the next town over).

I took 3 cell- phone fotos which are not very clear nor representative of the object seen. I will email to pd.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with this witness, and he sounded to us to be quite sober- and seriou-minded. PD))
