UFO Sighting in Pennsylvania on August 1st 2015 – Flame-like flickering flying object, slowed, hovered, and silently changed direction

- in UFO Reports
Above an urban area where there is a steady amount of airline and helicopter traffic each day, a strange craft caught my attention through the window because of its odd color (red/orange) and how it was flickering. At first I thought it was an airplane that was on fire and even considered the possibility that it might be on its way to crashing. Then I considered it maybe was a hot air baloon and the light was a fire beneath the balloon. However neither of these were the case - it was most like a helicopter but it was silent and had the strange flickering light pattern. During the minute or so that I watched it, it seemed to slow down and hover at a point above the residential neighborhood I am in, and then it picked up speed and headed off in a different direction (90 degrees to its apparent incoming approach). Somewhat nearsighted vision leaves me unable to clearly assess its shape or size. It could have been a helicopter with a very unusual flame-like lighting pattern, or maybe a drone. However I do not know what kind of drone can stop and then fly away towards the horizon into the clouds or wherever necessary to completely disappear from view.
