Orange light, occasionally blinking.

Sitting in my backyard at night while on my laptop (computer), facing towards the west, I noticed an orange sphere. It flew in a straight line & occasionally it would start blinking. It looked like an aircraft navigation light, however I thought it was odd that it clearly was orange & not red. It so happened that I was about to read reports on NUFORC & read that there were other reports in our state of "orange" lights/spheres. If I had read these reports before seeing the orange light, I would have watched it longer. But again, it was not a red navigation light; it was clearly orange like orange fruit, & I could see other red navigation lights to reference as there were multiple aircraft in the area.

I just wanted to point out that I'm an Air Force veteran & have witnessed the "triangle UFO" & I have witnessed a "green fireball". Both incidences included multiple witnesses. This "orange light" incident however was not as vivid & clear and therefore, it may have been an actual aircraft; however, I believe that taking the other similar sightings into consideration, that for a few reasons it would be better to report this incident.
