Orange glowing object seen over ocean

While walking along beach, noticed an orange,glowing round object moving slowly in a northerly direction.

After about two minutes, object made a 90 degree turn to east and soon disappeared. Sky conditions at time were partly cloudy.

I thought at time that object may had become obscured by clouds, but never saw it reappear. At no time did I see any strobes or position lights.

I judged object to be several miles out to sea and approximately 1500 feet in altitude.

Several minutes after object disappeared, I saw what was clearly a conventional aircraft moving south toward last sighted position of UFO.

I speculated that it could have been a military aircraft from Norfolk VA area.

There were many other people on beach at time of sighting, but I have no idea if any others noticed that object was unusual.
