Shape: Light
Duration:10 seconds
Fast moving orange light, it was not a aeroplane.

As this was a very warm night, I decided to sit out in the garden observing the night sky with my new binoculars. From the south east an orange light entered my field of view, but was moving extremley fast and I had difficulty tracking it. It crossed the sky from SE to Northwest in about 10 secs. The light was slightly larger than a star and constant.

((ADDENDUM))

I am positive that this object was not an airplane nor a shooting star.
