Can anyone identify this object?

Earlier I opened my windows in order to close the shutters and while doing so I saw an orange colored object cross the sky. I don't think it was a plane because it left no condensation trails behind it and it was too high and too big to be a helicopter.


My first thought would be an aircraft with propeller engines (since there was no trails) with orange sunset light being reflected of it.

Still I find it strange, any ideas?

Without zooming in I'd say a plane that wasn't high enough to leave a contrail with the sun bouncing off it. I've seen similar ones to that before. It could still be climbing out from an airport, or descending into one. It doesn't have to be a propeller plane, just one that isn't in the right conditions to leave a contrail, in fact from it's size it's a jet.

I was able to zoom this to 3200% and i must say although there is little definition to the object, what struck me is its bulky nature.

I see the shape of an airplane to be more linear and elongated where as this object seems almost as thick as it is long / wide.

this could just be the effect of reflected sunlight as a non-pilot and person terrified of flying it is hard for me to say.

Yes I can identify it for you, no problem at all my friend.

It's a little orange speck in the sky.

Could be a cheesy wotsit

It would depend on the angle of the plane to the camera. Under certain angles, like where it was coming towards the camera it would appear blockier than if it was going parallel to the camera. And it also depends on the type of aircraft. A 747 would appear blockier because of the bubble on top of the fuselage.

I cropped the image and resized it but couldn't get any definite details from the object.

The lights just blur anything out.

Nice catch though. Keep hunting and you'll get something good eventually.

Thanks for the replies. It must be a plane, your right!
