Astronomer Sees Airborne Amber Light With Red Light on Top

Orting is About 15 Miles Southeast of Tacoma.
Orting is About 15 Miles Southeast of Tacoma.

Date of Sighting: July 25, 2009
Time of Sighting: 9:35 PM
Location of Sighting: Orting, Washington (See Map)

Description: I saw an extremely bright amber light with steady red light on top. It was moving South to North. This caught my eye because it was so bright. I could still see it even though it went behind a dark cloud. It was moving rather slowly then stopped, then moved west at a very high rate of speed. Then it disappeared. I am an astronomer and know what meteors, the ISS (International Space Station), and satellites look like to the naked eye. It turned too sharp, was too bright, and took off faster than any aircraft I have ever seen.

Note: Here is a professional scientist who is confused by what he saw. What more can I say?
