|saw an orange-yellow circular glowing light in the sky
I was driving and saw an orange-yellow circular "burning" light in the sky. I asked my girlfriend what it was and she was as confused as I was.
At first we thought it was a helicopter with a dim light.
We then noticed it was not moving the way a plane would.
We drove closer my girlfriend said maybe it was a Chinese lantern because all it seemed to do was float. After a few min the light dimmed out an disappeared.
We have no explanation to what it is
