From the Western Shore of St. Mary's County near the mouth of the St. Jerome's Creek I observed in the NE sky a large bright orange object. I tracked it for at least two minutes as it started to come down toward the Chesapeake Bay. Once it got lower it dimmed considerably but still was noticeable until it hit the water. Once it hit there was a brief glow and then gone. I suspect it was some type of space junk. I am not sure why it would be bright orange or why it would have a brief glow once it reached the water. I should have had a camera ready. I could have had it on TV tonight. But, I wasn't thinking about filming for some reason. I was too surprised looking at what I saw. I was also surprised by the size. In fact, I thought it may cause a wave once it hit. There was a moderate wave shortly afterward that was larger than any of the usual waves on the Bay. It may or may not have been associated with the object. Very easily could have been something else.
