Sighting Details

I went out to get the paper around 6:00 AM. I looked across the nearby highway overpass and saw a red-orange object that looked like a paper-lantern. It was approximately one-half mile away over the Applegate post office area. I wobbled as it flew in a WNW direction across I-80 toward my neighborhood. There was a re-orange glow emanating from the rear of the object that lit up the low overhead cloud cover. My impression was that it was small plane on fire (there is an airport a few miles away). It made no sound. The object slowed, started to turn South and began ascending slowly. It finally occurred me to get my phone and get some video. But by then, the object was about one mile away and had risen to about 1000 ft above the I-80 roadway. As it flew away, it continued to emit the re-orange light.
