Witness report: Walking outside for a sky visual, I saw a bright, noiseless, red-orange orb pass directly overhead near the zenith headed East.
The object was approximately 40-degrees up, then moved to about 35-degrees. The object's speed looked constant. Then it moved downward or further East behind trees.
While reviewing the images at high resolution, I noticed a shape change with a bulge like a smaller orb was attached or associated it (see image). The direction of travel was plotted from locations of serial shots. Also noticed was a blue cast to a small portion of the orb's upper right side.
We live under an East to West flightpath and about 3-miles from an airforce base to the South. The West to East commercial path is to the South several miles away but during this time, I did not notice any air traffic and this is not the first time.
Any objects tend to stand out when they move in the -wrong- direction, have no flashing lights, landing lights, or FAA-required green and red wing tip lights. Camera Nikon D5100, Date: 11/7/2014, Time: 6.42 am. Mufon case 66469.
Enhanced brightness and contrast.
