I wanted a decent shot of the night sky so I went to Pier Cove Beach in Fennville,Mi which is the closest low light pollution area around . I set up my camera and pointed it at polaris for a star trail shot with hopefully a few of the Camelopardalid meteors in it. Shortly after starting the intervalometer I spotted an orange orb come over the horizon from the then visible Milwaukee mirage and it just flew around over Lake Michigan with no identifying lights or sound. It moved effortlessly. It looked as if it was going to stop but then it would accelerate. The orb looked sort of like an airplane that's taking off and still has its lights on but when it moves in a different direction the light never dims even when it moves away from you. Since this was not the first orange orb I've witnessed around the lake I just watched it and let my camera be. Luckily the orb flew in frame, down the beach and out of sight. The last time I saw orbs at the Lake was in 2012 during the persied meteor shower. That time there were three of them and they moved in patterns that gave me goosebumps and made me question what I thought I knew about our world.
