Following a yard sale last night we were standing outside my sister in-laws home when my brother in-law shouted whats that? a UFO? I immediately looked up and saw a bright orange object moving across the sky. I served in the USAF for 24 years and have never seen anything like this. The sky was solid overcast and this object was moving in a straight line below the clouds. The shape we observed was half moon shape with the curved edge facing the direction of travel,it was completely silent no sound whatsoever. I grabbed my cell phone and snapped a photo of it. Upon examining the photo I saw only what appeared to be a star next to a tree when I zoomed in on the star a definite shape can be seen and no star could have possibly been seen under the overcast. After snapping the photo the object continued its travel and the orange light went out and we observed a dark shape until it disappeared from view. I have been a airplane nut for years and pride myself on identifying aircraft, both military and civilian, I have never seen anything like this. How the orange glow did not show in the photo is beyond me. I have always believed in UFO's and have seen a few but have never been able to photograph one, until now.
