Shape: Fireball
Duration:4 minutes
orange glowing object that didn't blink or flash it looked like it was on fire

Outside facing east right at 2300 when orange glow like plane running lights came towards my direction.

It was about 1 mile away then drifted at a steady pace high in the sky at jet level and continued west.

The object made no sound as it drew overhead or as it passed by.

The orange light was not large but hard to judge at night, no wingtip lights just the steady orange glow. It looked as if it was on fire.
