i was taking dog for walk and was noticing how pretty sky was when i noticed an red-orange glow in the sky.

at first i thought it might be an airplane but then i noticed it was a solid red-orange, traveling at a steady speed across the sky, devoid of any blinking lights. i raised my fist out to try to determine size and it seemed to be the size of 1/2 of a pencil eraser,(a litter bigger than the brightest star out that night) i walked out to center of road where i watched it disappear over the tree tops. it never changed color and i did not notice any sound. the sky was very clear that night
