Message: Friday, July 31, at approximatley 10:30 PM. We live on the west side of Carmel,IN and noticed a large orange light rise from the southeast horizon moving upward and towards the northwest. It moved slowly up to around a 35-40 degree altitude all the while the brightness was dimming. After about 1.5 to 2.0 minutes it remained stationary then began to fade out completely.
We noticed a plane coming in from the north while seeing the object. The object had a much larger and brighter light than the plane and it appeared from where we were the pilots could have seen the object, too.
