Last night about 9:40 pm I was taking a break and having a cigarette while working at a local convenience store. I spotted a ball of orange light in the southwest part of the sky. I assumed it was a plane until I had watched for about half a minute. I began to suspect it wasn't a plane when I could not discern any blinking red or green lights. I watched as it traveled in a northeastern path. It appeared to be at least a couple of thousand feet up, maybe higher. After another thirty seconds or so I poked my head inside the store and said to my coworker "Hey, do you want to see a UFO?" My coworker joined me outside as there was no one in the store. We both watched as it traveled overhead. My coworker said "That does not look like any plane I have ever seen." I agreed. Even when the light passed directly overhead there was no engine noise as would be expected from an airplane or helicopter. We observed the phenomenon until it passed out of sight behind some trees to the east of the strip mall complex the store is located in. I have no idea what it was, it definitely not a plane, helicopter, hot-air balloon or a meteor.
