On 07/30/2014 my wife, teenage grandson, and I were visiting at app.10:45 PM in Toluca Il. I was facing a window when I noticed the dark, bright red orb in the sky moving West to East. I brought it to their attention and the 3 of us got up and moved to the window and observed the object for a few seconds then went outside for a better look.
I couldn���t tell how far away this thing was but it looked about the size of a full moon almost directly overhead.It wasn���t traveling at a high rate of speed but more like the speed of a small plane.
The color was a dark red like fire but no flames were visible. As it traveled East away from us it faded from dark red to orange then yellow to red again. I estimate that we viewed it for at least 20+ seconds.As it was nearing the end of our sight it curved from East to South then disappeared. We didn���t hear any sound or see any other activity in the sky. No pictures were taken.
