Description: A woman has been seeing a bright orange light hovering in south to southeast sky for the past five nights. The light is brighter than surrounding stars. When viewed through binoculars the light appears to have a dark center surrounded by orange lights.

Additional Information Received From Witness: It looks completely different than any stars in the area and smaller than the moon, but not by a whole lot. When we zoomed in on it with binoculars what I saw very closely resembled the picture posted recently on your site in Iowa or Illinois I forget which? And it is very much in orange color like fire orange. We watched it move along the horizon. A few nights ago we could actually see clouds reflecting orange light around it so it was obvious that it was in our atmosphere.

Note: The witness has been viewing the planet Mars which is very bright in the southern sky this month. Mars has brightness of -2.7. Venus is the brightest planet and sometimes reaches brightness magnitudes below -4.0. (Lower numbers indicate increasing brightness.) Also Mars is characteristically red or red-orange. A photo taken by one of my security cameras in Helena, MT shows Mars. Mars was still visible about 30 minutes before sunrise on July 22, 2018.

    Also saw a very bright orange light at.About 5:00 AM on July 21. It was low in the southwestern sky. With binoculars it looked like a burning orange light. This was seen from the Bitteroot Valley in Montana. I have never seen anything that bright. It appeared to be stationary. What was it?
