|Orange light/flare rising quickly, changing directions fairly rapidly, blinking twice then disappearing.
Orange light in the South/East, me and my friend were out smoking on the porch. The light was very consistent color and bright, like it could have been a flare. I saw it through binoculars and I couldn't discern any shape.
After it got a ways into the sky it changed directions, either heading towards or away from us. It dimmed quickly, brightened, dimmed again, brightened, then disappeared.
Very little to no wind, and I confirmed this by watching the clouds move in relation to the few visible stars.
My roommate said that he saw this exact object earlier in August, but I don't know when.
