orange lights from Northeast to Southwest

My husband pulled into our driveway from the store, walked into the house to tell me about seeing 4 orange lights outside; he wondered if it could be Unmanned Aircraft.

Not immediately, but a few minutes later I walked outside to take my son to a school event. Waiting in the driveway, I looked up to see if I saw what my husband mentioned. I saw just 1 orange light. It was to the right of Orion’s belt (the 3-stars in a row). It was dark, but I saw a dark gray cloud cover the orange light briefly, making it seem to have disappeared or gone dimmer.

Not thinking much of it, I did not stay to watch longer. It was cold and we were on our way, running just a bit behind, we left at about 7:05 p.m. Central Time.

At 10 p.m. we walked outside together, the moon have moved up much higher and no orange lights in view.
