Bright orange donut off Cook Inlet Alaska

Large bright orange donut-shaped object hovering southeast of Iliamna volcano for about an hour and then slowly moved north along Cook Inlet shoreline until it hovered around the base of Iliamna volcano for several minutes. Its light dimmed until it was no longer visible after that.

In moments it appeared to split into two separate objects and then rejoin while it was hovering. The donut shape was only noticed while looking through binoculars. At a distance it just appeared as a growing and shrinking orb.
