Bright orange light travels soundlessly across sky at low altitude

I was standing in my backyard and saw a bright orange light moving south to north appear in my vision. It was between 200 to 300 ft off the ground and made absolutely no sound. It got about 2 or 3 houses south of mine then just stopped for around 10 seconds before continuing north out of sight. I went to the front yard to watch it and it was almost directly over the street in front of my house as it flew north over the tree line. I am the same person who saw a similar sighting on 11/17/12 from my yard.

I am a retired cop and ex-military and am very familiar with normal aircraft.
