Observed overhead, SE sky a single glowing orange object about 1/4 size of full moon. Initially thought it was a plane, common here, but not flashing and unusual hue.
Seemed to be fiery with slight variation in the orange hues. Moved slowly to the North for 10 seconds, about 15+ moon diameters. Or width of 5 fingers at arm's length.
Then slowly made a 90 degree turn to the East. Travelled 5 seconds, about 4 fingers, slowly dimming and diminishing in size. Suddenly disappeared and not seen again.
Unfortunately, I did not have my camera with video with me. I have never seen anything like this before. I did an Internet search and found similar observations at this website.
I believe I have solved my orange glow mystery.
Enclosed 2 pictures, found this a.mm washed up on the beach, of a plastic very thin walled bag with wire ring at the base with central wire support likely to hold a fiery container, not present.
Some smoke/soot on interior bag.
Works like a hot air balloon.
Seems somewhat dangerous to light one of these and send it aloft?
Likely are purchased commercially due to its construction and would seem to explain the single and multiple objects and slow movement.
An Internet search may find the commercial source?
