Flame-like orange light, moved in a straight line, curved slightly, came to a complete stop, and then after a ew seconds, disappeared.

I was out getting my mail and and as I was walking back down my path to my house, I saw a strange orange light in the sky. It was different, so I stood and watched it. It flickered a bit and reminded me of a flame, and was colored as a flame also. It moved different than a plane. When I first noticed it, it was moving slowly and in a straight line and then curved slightly and came to a stop! Then I knew for sure it wasn't a plane! It stood still for a while and then was slowly getting dimmer. Then it finally disappeared completely. I stood and watched for a while to see if it would come back but it didn't. It was just the night sky then, and I was in disbelief. The weather was clear - no clouds at all - only the night sky with the stars (the ones you can see in the City anyway).
