Saw a similar object over Christchurch 8.55pm Saturday 26 March 2011 moving from West to East direction, quite low in the sky. Saw for about three minutes then it disappeared suddenly. Definitely wasn't a satellite (moving faster) or plane, (no blinking lights).

Moved very slowly no noise from light which appeared orange and then drifted away towards morrinsville. At 9.30 we saw a orange flash very low flash over the top of our place going north. It was foggy/cloudy so
