While sitting in morning traffic on highway 270 southbound right passed the Wooten parkway overpass I looked up to the left and noticed a bright orange orb/sphere to the East between college park and Baltimore approx. 5,000-10,000ft in altitude. At first I thought it was the moon with a orange illumination, but I was to small and to bright. That morning it was a heavy drizzle, so I thought I was stopped under a bright lamp and the beads of water on windshield was causing a refraction of light. I rolled my window down and looked with my eyes and saw a a bright orb just in one spot not moving as far as I can tell for about 2-3 minutes. Then, like a light switch, it moved slightly then just sped off, but faster than Iíve ever seen.
