Full Description of Event/Sighting: Hi would just like to let you know that my girlfriend and myself saw a strange object in the sky when we both went to get in our car. I looked into the sky in a northwards direction and noticed a bright orange orb of light. At first I thought it might be a firework parachute rocket but they glow pink. The object did not appear to be moving fast as it was travelling towards and over us. We both watched the object travel from north to south. At first I thought it was a spectacular view of the International Space station because it made a pass over us very similar to it.

The object appeared to get higher very quickly from when we first saw it, and I would estimate that the whole duration lasted 2 minutes and the object was miles high when it passed over us both and was travelling the same speed as the International Space station. The bright burning orange glow seemed to slowly fade as we watched it disappear into the distance. When objects appear from north to south the sun can magnify them till they are out of the horizon.

Have been looking for an answer to this mystery cannot yet conclude.

However have so far:

Checked Starry Night For asteroid and Comet Passes for that time. - (None) at that location and time.
Checked International Space Station orbits. - (None) at that location and time. Light is white not orange.

Chinese Lanterns to check. - ( ) Could not travel that high or fast !
Iridium Flares to check. - ( ) Under taking further research.

As an amateur astronomer I have never seen anything as unique as this in the night sky. In general I would say that there is an perfect explanation for everything, However
as yet its explanation has not been concluded. Regards.
