After my co-worker and I shut down the store we were in the parking lot about to get in our cars. He and I noticed a yellow-orange orb in the sky. The brightness of the object and that it seemed to be moving higher is what first grabbed our attention. We watched it for approximately one minute during which time it kept moving and rose higher. When the object did not disappear I got out my phone and started filming.
The orb moved from south to north and seemed to get higher as it moved. The orb flared to bright red (at 21 seconds on the video), became larger and began to pulsate. The edges became fuzzy looking after the flare. It did not seem to be moving either toward or away from us.
I took a one minute video of the object. It was still glowing and moving when I stopped the camera. My co-worker and I watched the object for another minute or so before getting in our separate cars. I drove north toward my house away from the object so I do not know how much longer it was in the sky.
