Orange glowing object seen by 8 people

On that evening approximately 8 people including myself witnessed an orange glowing object that was heading northto south.

I along with others who are amaetuer astronomers witnessed this object and we are pretty certain it was not a meteorite or any other possible known object.

It appeared to be 10,000 feet and was traveling at a steady pace. It had a very bright orange glow but no evidence of a tail was visible or seen by any of the witnesses.

It eventually just disappeared in a flash.
