At 2:30 am my wife woke me and told me to grab my camera "there is something orange in the night sky. I grab my camera and observed this orange, flickering object in the SW sky. I took a couple of photos of it for proof. It didn't do anything out of the realms of what we have as far as aircraft goes. I just want to know what my wife, daughter and I saw. When I first saw it I thought it looked like something on fire. It moved very slow and the orange color was very vivid but it would flicker . It's hard to say how far away it was. It made no sound at all. At about 3:00 am it disappeared into the sky to the northwest of my house. I thought it might be a hot air balloon but at 2:30 in the morning ? I called the Placerville airport and they have no report of anything in the area at that time. I'm scratching my head here. Please help.
