|looked for planet type object on star map, object didnt apear.chaged dirrection and stoped. black with orange tint
While waiting to watch fireworks, my girlfriend pointed out what we thought was a planet. It was round and was noticibly a diffrent shade of black than the sky was it also had a very slight orange tint to it.
We quickly pulled up sky map to see what planet it was. It did not appear on skymap. I proceded to watch this object and it began to move slightly northwest in a slow erratic motion that turned and stopped several times then I lost track of it.
If the sun is a hour past setting in the west how can I not clearly see a object that is directly overhead, and I can clearly see, just like the moon.
I believe this object was using the earth's shadow to hide while it navigated through the sky.
