Summary/Description:  I was sleeping on the terrace of the building in which we were staying. It must have been a little over 2:00 a.m. in the morning. I was just lying down face up to the sky, admiring the bright stars and the constellations.

It was then that I spotted this orange colored bright object, it was round and not very large, actually it was pretty small, about the size of a cricket ball. But the smallness of it’s size maybe attributed to the fact that it was very high up in the sky. I spotted it when it was about 50 – 60 degrees from the horizon moving slowly towards the zenith. It seemed to be traveling with a constant speed up until it reached the zenith. no sooner it reached the zenith, it made a sudden 90 degree turn to my left and traveled really fast, with maybe 3 – 4 times the speed with which it was traveling when I first sighted it. The whole episode lasted maybe 50 to 60 seconds.
