Bright orange orb quickly passing close by without sound.

Large bright orange glowing orb about 1500ft up. Fast smooth movement SE to NW. Came from the south over Highway 20 and moved steadily came over close to Byrnes Park heading toward Waverly. No flashing lights like any aircraft I've seen and NO sound at all! Watched for about 10 min as it passed close by heading NW until it got too far away to see. Orb was like a vapor cloud but bright and almost solid looking with a definite solid dark vertical rectangular area in the center but completely surrounded by the bright orange glow
