Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object, The object changed color
Bright orb seen moving slowly over lake and the picked up speed and disappeared.

I was lying on my couch which has a large window that faces a grassy area and then a small lake. As I was watching TV, I caught a small orb out of the corner of my eye. It was high above the lake and moving downward.

At first I thought it was a shooting star, but it was moving too slowly and the orb stayed circular and appeared to have a haze around it. As it got closer to the tree line across the lake, a round red light appeared at the bottom of the orb (but was not flashing). The orb then started moving very quickly before disappearing. The whole incident lasted about 7 seconds. I am certain this was not a shooting star or aircraft.
