Orange light, with no noise flying level, then climbing rapidly.
At 10:00 p.m. on August 30, 2010 we were driving home when we spotted an object, an orange light, seen flying level and approaching from northerly direction.
Object stopped and reversed course before hovering, then climbing rapidly to the east before disappearing from view on what is a very clear night.
No noise or photographs taken. Am used to seeing helicopters and high flying aircraft in area, but this had no other identifying lights.
