My husband and I saw an orange oval object over the trees last night and it looked like something on fire. We thought it was a meteor, but not sure.

saw something similar last night around 10:50 pm (est). The path was from the south to the north, but curved to the east over our neighborhood. Orange in color, larger than a star or even a planet, and silent. Moving about the speed of a small airplane.

I saw something very odd over Salt Lake City at 12:10am (July 27,2010) tonight while walking my dog along 11th Avenue. I just Googled:“orange triangle light glow over salt lake city tonight disappears” which led me to your site. I thought I would find others who saw this. If I thought it was going to disappear like that I would have taken a picture.

Well to the right of the full moon from my perspective, maybe 20 degrees, I just noticed a very strange orange flame like light that appeared to be heading North toward the Avenues. I presumed it was odd colored forward lights to a plane flying low in the Valley. It was odd from the start. It was like a triangle in the center surrounded by a flaming orange with almost a tail of the same flaming orange. I stared at it for 2 minutes expecting it to eventually make sense. But it didn’t. It didn’t move much really. Never any noise. I was expecting and listening for an engine noise that never came.

Then it started to fade. I thought it was turning away, but then it faded, still visible but smaller. Then it totally disappeared. I thought maybe it went behind a cloud. But there were no clouds in the sky in that area at all.

In total I witnessed this for about two minutes. And at arms length, it would have taken a full fingernail to cover it up.

The comment above about moving at the speed of a small aircraft, but silent is exactly what I saw before it disappeared.
