Orange Glowing Object traveling in lower skies

Around midnight on 8/15/09, Lake Ogemaw Michigan, I looked up into the sky and noticed a glowing orange object moving at a steady pace. It looked circular in shape but it also had a star-burst/multi-star spike shape on the front of the object. The distance from the ground to the object seemed fairly low (approx 1 mile up) I have never seen anything like this before, it looked odd. One of the other observers mentioned that it could have been some sort of satellite coasting the sky, but I have never seen one, so I cannot comment one way or another. By the time I went to get my camera, the object had passed on and could not be seen.
