From Phila. looking SE I observed an orange orb that traveled down and then away from my sight.

On Sept.27th at approximately 5:45 A.M. (+/- 2 minutes) while viewing the south east skies (primarily more to the east vs. south) I noticed an orange orb under the star Regulus. It appeared to travel straight down from Regulus to almost my viewing horizon and then travel south or distally away from my vantage point. The orange orb continued on this path until finally dipping below my horizon and out of sight. I was able to apply both my 4x30 and 10x50 binoculars to the object. This did not reveal any detail to enhance my description of the orb. I played my Starry Night software and did not notice any satellites traveling in this pattern during this time period.

My background is I am a beginner star watcher with over a year sky watching experience. I own a 4 x 30 and 10 x 50 range binoculars and a 100mm Orion tabletop telescope with the ability of 80x magnification at this time.
