Duration: 5 minutes
On the night of Nov. 20th, at approximately 5 pm (1700 hrs), I was at work and was informed by a fellow employee that there was something in the sky, and that it looked like it might be on fire.

I stopped what I was doing and went outside where another employee was already out there and watching a reddish/orange what I thought was a star, possibly Venus.

He informed me that there had been 2 of these objects but the other one had disappeared from view. He also told me that they had been closer and larger in size and so were moving away.

I continued watching and realized it couldn't be Venus as it appeared to be moving slowly and changing in brightness, from a dull orange to a brighter orange and then back to dull again.

There were some clouds in the sky and it was getting dark but I noticed the clouds seemed to be very high in the sky and after about 5 minutes the orange object started to noticeably pick up speed and disappeared behind the clouds.

We watched for a few more minutes but the object didn't return. I went outside a few more times that evening but never saw the object again.
