Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Very bright deep orange circle. Bright white in the center.
Size of Object(s)
With arms stretched out if I were to mimic an almost full pinch of the object, the object would be a 1/4" in diameter when it was visibly closest to us. This is looking up towards the West at a 45 degree angle as it cut across the sky. If I was to comparing it to one of the airplanes that flew by shortly after my guesstimate would be the same size as an Sesna's wing span. Around 25 feet in diameter.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Residential area close to downtown Winnipeg.
Full Description & Details
Is was roughly around 11:15-11:30 pm while cleaning up after a bonfire in my backyard. My wife had gone to bed already and a few friends that visited earlier had left with the exception of one. We actually hung out in the backyard because there were Northern Lights actually showing in the North East. Rarely ever seen in the city anymore!
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No. Absolutely not. Someone said a Chinese lantern but I've concluded that there was now way it could have been because of the intensity of the light did not fade in the distance.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I need to see one to believe one. And I believe I actually saw one for the first time! That said I've always had an interest in ufology, reading mostly information online or on tv shows.
