Bright glowing orb, moving slowly then fading into the night.

Riding home on my bicycle this evening I saw a bright orange light in the sky that that grew brighter and moved slowly in the sky. It was situated above West Eugene and moved too slowly and was up too high to have been a firework, nor could it have been a airplane because it moved too slowly and was moving vertically when it finally faded away.

The UFO was looked like an orb and was a shining, bright orange. It seemed to be quite small, maybe a few feet in diameter. It stood out because it was much too big to be a planet or a star and did not move like a plane or a helicopter would. When it when away, it faded very slowly and appeared to ascend further up into the sky.
