Glowing red/orange light near NYC

i was standing on 44th street in the middle between 2nd av and 3rd av, looking east. A glowing fuzzy red/orange light caught my eye very very high up in the sky. As i looked up, it seemed to go forward (west) for about 4 seconds, then it stopped, and went south at a 90 degree angle for 4 seconds, then it went north for four seconds, almost forming a "T" then it went straight up or back in the "Z" plane (not x or y) and slowly disappeared.

During this i made sure i wasnt seeing a reflection off of a building, or window and all i could see was sky, i even blinked a few times to make sure my eyes were'nt messed up.
