Out side at about 11PM me and my girlfriend looking at the stars, then we saw an orb like object, not a perfect oval. Glowing slightly, looked like it was a fire ball. It had a smooth path decending at first then ascending, then took off NE. It was going north for about 1 minute, silent as can be.When forst noticed knew it was not a plane, then thought chinese lantern, however it was parallel with the ground moving at a high speed. I light those things of multiple times a year it was not a lantern. We walked down the street to get closer, thought it was pretty cool. The lost it after it picked up some speed and disappeared.
