Orange bright light over fayetteville Nc

In fayetteville North Carolina around 8 to 8:30pm i saw a very bright orange looking light. It was located about 5 to 10 miles out in the North West sky. It was maybe a mile or two up from ground level. It never moved. It was as still as looking at any other star. It was at least three times the size of the brightest star in the western sky.

At first I thought that it was a star dying or something. I called the kids but when they came out the door it just was gone.

I started to go back in but I did not. About five minutes later it reappeared in the same spot. I called my family again and they witness the event also. It lasted about 30 seconds again and began to get brighter than extinguished. What was it?In fayetteville North Carolina around 8 to 8:30pm i saw a very bright orange looking light.
