Unexplained red-orange object seen moving slowly in sky, and then vanishes.

While sitting on my porch I happened to glance up at the sky. I noticed a bright orange object moving very slowly. It did not appear to be very close by, at first I rationalized it to be a plane, but the color was not right for it to be a plane. I pointed it out to the person I was sitting with. We continued to watch the object and I noticed its color changed from bright orange to red to orange and back to red and orange again. My friend mentioned that to him it appeared to be "V" shaped. He went back in the house but I continued to watch. The object then stopped. Just stopped, right where it was in the sky and then it vanished. I watched for quite a few more minutes to see if it would reappear (still thinking it was a plane that perhaps went behind a cloud or something...even though I could see stars where the object had vanished), but it did not.
