Saw amber/orange lighted object in western sky

CORRECTED STATEMENT AS I MEANT TO WRITE EAST TO NORTHEAST DIRECTION NOT WEST TO NORTHWEST.

Took the trash out and looked to the west and saw an amber/orange object in the sky. Thought it might be Mars or Mercury due to the color. The object started to move in a west to northwest ((sic. east to northeast)) direction, so I knew it wasn't a planet. I then paid closer attention and saw a larger circle of light below and a smaller light on top. You could see a black area (I think it could have been the night sky as that's what it looked like) between the two amber/orange lights. The object was silent.

The night was clear and there was no cloud cover.

I immediately tried to find a witness and when I returned the object was gone.
