On 4 Jan 14 around 6:50-7pm, I was on my back porch smoking. For some reasoning I looked at the sky and saw what I thought was a bright star. The "star" was bright but had an orange tint to it. It started moving a little and I was thinking either I'm seeing stuff or it's moving. Sure enough it was moving and I ran into my apartment and grabbed my roommate who saw it with me. It moved right then stopped moved up and left at the same time like a half circle going counterclockwise then descended and disappeared because the trees blocked my view. This all happened in about 54 seconds. It was at least the altitude of an airplane but it was far enough to disappear behind 50-60ft trees that are 150yds from my backdoor. I've seen A LOT of aircraft and I've never seen anything that maneuvered like what I saw or was as bright as what I saw. When it descended it did so in a straight line and you could tell it was at a steady speed. Now I know how people feel when they see something like this and nobody believes them because I used to be one of those type of people. Wow!
