Flare-like object, like a fireball with no tail.

On Thursday 26 October 2016, at 1910, sighting occurred in Oklahoma City around NW 50th & Portland Avenue. Three of us were on our way to a family function, when we were getting in the vehicle 1 of us looked straight up into the sky & witnessed a BRIGHT orange flare like object.

The object moved in a straight line traveling north, I observed the object through binoculars. Another took several photographs.

From the time I observed this object, straight overhead, until we could no longer see it was about 3 minutes. At the time this occurred there were no stars visible.

We immediately contacted a local tv station & newspaper. The next day we contacted NORAD & the local astronomy club.

Common opinion amongst my little group is that it was a satellite reflecting the sun. Although, no satellites were listed to be visible at that time.
