walking s-se I noticed an unnatural light in the sky s-se about 30 degrees. Motionless, obvious to be a great distance away

I was leaving my office for lunch and I walk from my building to a guard shack. Between my bldg. and the guard shack I noticed a new light in the night sky. looking s-se and about 30 degrees inclination a bright yellow-orange, more yellow than a halogen light, sitting in the sky. No motion whatsoever could be discerned. I entered the guard shack and told the captian of this and he came outside with me and it was gone. no trace anywhere in the sky. I blew it off for the most part, however I did discuss it with colleagues and a late night guard seargant and my girlfriend as well. I forgot about it until I read the reports from last night at I work and live very near two different airports and know that even at a great distance at night you can see both strobes and movement of aircraft and I noticed neither of these. I also live in an area where we have quite a bit of aerial police helicopter activity and the search lights are very different from this. No one I have spoken to has seen this but me.
