Bright orange oddly shaped object sighted near Knoxville, TN.

At approximately 11:35 p.m. on the night of July 19th, 2019 I observed an oddly shaped orange light in the sky above northern Knox County, Tennessee. The object was substantially brighter than the surrounding stars, and was approximately 30° over the horizon. The object held a stationary position for around five minutes before something behind me caught my attention. I looked back immediately to find it had disappeared. Judging from the direction and height of the object it may have appeared overhead in or around Northern Tennessee.
