Description: In very dark sky,noticed what looked like a bright star,but attracte my attention was that it was a bright orange in colour.It was located approx, at an elevation of about 70 degrees above the horison looking east from my position in Seascale and at about cloud level. As I watched ,after about two minutes. the orange glow disappeared in a manner which could have been slowly turning off a gas flame; and I did not see it reappear again but went back in doors after two or three minutes.

Could it have been a hot air balloon?
