I was walking with several other people, checking out Cuenca (town), which is located in Ecuador. This was after dinner, so at night time. I looked up and saw a bright orange object in the night sky, and pointed it out to the others. We couldn't figure out what it was. It was just hovering there. It didn't appear to be a tower, as it was not connected to anything, and it was right above us. Nor did it appear to be a flare (no fireworks then). It was completely silent and just hovering there. We watched it for a couple of minutes. Then we just went about our business exploring the town.
