Fast, bright moving object in Northern Minnesota

On August 6, 2016, at approximately 2200 hours, my wife and I were on our rear house deck, which is facing north towards the woods, when I observed an object moving across the sky quickly. I pointed the object out to my wife and she asked what it was.

We live in a very rural wooded area and it was quiet, the object made no noise and there was no flashing lights common with aircraft in the night sky.

I told my wife that I thought it might be a satellite, but it was going way too fast and too low in the night sky. The object was moving quickly from West to East horizon.

Object did not make any noise or any other light other than the bright yellow/orange it emitted.
