orange light appears and then reappears in same " flight path" about 20 minutes later

At approximately 21:50 Saturday August 18 2012, at a campsite in Phillips, Maine, 20 persons witnessed a bright orange light object flying way above the horizon travelling from the Northwest to the southeast. It travelled at a steady, continued, even pace for at least 5 minutes before leaving field of view. It appeared to be larger than a "distant star," and also more bright than any other stars in this clear sky, and also larger than any aircraft lights that were viewed.

About 20 minutes after this sighting, it appeared again following the same path and was identical in flight movement and intensity of brightness.
