Strange orange fireball over Sevierville TN, just vanishes.

I was outside stargazing at about 2:45am. I then noticed an orange colored ball of light in the northwest, flying southeast. The light traveled across the sky, about 50 degrees above the horizon, for approximately 30-45 seconds before literally just disappearing.

There were no clouds that could have hidden the object.

At first I thought it could have just been a helicopter or an airplane, since the airport is just a few miles away. But it had no strobe lights, and again just vanished.
