Duration: 20-30 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
I saw a yellow-orange, spherical glowing light in the early evening sky, moving horizontally at first and then changing direction

Tonight around 9:30 p.m. Eastern Time, I was observing the moon which was in the southern sky. Then I happened to notice a glowing light in the eastern sky, approx. 20 degrees up from the horizon. The sky was dark and rather hazy from clouds and I did not see a craft; it was just the light that I saw. I did not hear any sound. The light was spherical or oval shaped, yellow-orange in color, and it moved horizontally at first (from south to north).

Next, it changed direction - appearing to go up and down slightly, and it shifted toward the south a bit. Finally it appeared to move toward the north and east, and the glowing began to fade (became seemingly smaller) to what looked like a tiny dot, possibly orange or red. eventually the light disappeared from my view. The total elapsed time of my viewing was approximately 20-30 seconds.

This was the first time I have ever seen such a thing. The light didn't seem to be coming from an airplane, nor from a helicopter. I am a male in my early fifties.

My daughter, age 6, was with me and asked me if it was an "alien spaceship."
