Static orange "garland" silently gliding over Vancouver

I was looking at the stars from my deck, and suddenly it looked like a curly orangy garland was floating above my head. Then I realized that if it was a garland, I wouldn't see it (since it was dark already) and even if I did, it would be moving in the wind, whereas the shape of what I saw was completely static. So I suddenly realized that I was seeing some flying object, as it was advancing in the air very steadily (not high speed at all), and it looked like I was seeing the back of the object (nothing else showed). I could follow it for maybe 20 or 30 seconds, and then the orangy glow slowly disappeared as it moved further away towards the East. It was absolutely silent and didn't seem very high in the sky (unless it is a gigantic object). Had I not looked up at that very moment (when the "garland" was vertically above me and the most visible) , I probably wouldn't have noticed the object at all.
