bright orange sphere in the sky

Last night around midnight, I was out smoking on my deck. I saw a bright orange sphere come from the east. I saw it through the trees as it broke the plane of my tree line. It was a bright vivid orange color. It slowly changed directions and curved to the left. It was a gradual change in direction. It followed the top of my tree line as clear as could be. then it slowly changed direction again toward the west and eventually passed below my tree line. I estimate this object to be about 3-7 miles away, it was hard to tell. The way it moved was very smooth almost gliding like...no speratic shifts or jerking.. For as far away as it was, it still had a good size to it. There was no wind outside and it was absolutely silent. I am 40 years old. I would consider myself a skeptic to things like this. I am not saying that it was an alien life form, but I am saying that is was nothing like I had ever seen and I could not even begin to guess at what it could have been . I am interested to see if anyone else saw what I saw last night.
