Strange object spotted over Simi Valley

While outside on a patio looking up near the ursa major constellation saw what appeared to be a really slow moving object re-entering the atmosphere. It was visible for about 1 or 2 minutes but never really clear what it was. after about another 2 minutes it was visible again but was a very dim orange or amber colored but not bright, like it was faintly glowing. It was moving from the east to the west and appeared to be falling to me. It continued to move towards the horizon and disappeared. I thought it might have something to do with the space shuttle landing, but heard no boom and the shuttle I later learned had landed in the afternoon, six or more hours before. Two other friends also witnessed the event.
