Bright Orange/Reddish Object moving slowly over Lake Champlain

I went outside and overheard my neighbor telling someone on the phone that she was looking at a UFO. I looked up and saw it out over Lake Champlain. It was very bright, orange/reddish (the color of a flame), a little bigger than a star, and was moving slowly. First it went north, and then it turned south. It was at about a 40 degree angle from my viewpoint. It appeared to "flicker" and also fluctuated in intensity (sometimes dimmer and sometimes brighter). I called my friend who lives about a mile or so away, and she went outside and could see it as well. It did not have blinking lights or white "headlight" type lights and thus did not resemble a plane (in fact, there was a plane near it in the sky for comparison, but it was impossible to tell how far away the plane or the object were from myself and/or from each other). Eventually the object moved south and I could no longer see it because the trees in the yard were blocking my view.
