The object was a dull orange glow, shaped like a flattened image of Saturn. It crossed in front of Orion and I caught it in my binoculars. Moved in a sweeping arc from SW to NE

Same as above, I was alone with my binoculars checking out the Orion Nebula when something flashed in my vision. I looked up to see the object make a sweeping curve. It was a dull orange slightly glowing color. The best way I can describe it is if someone was flashing an image on some clouds, except it was a perfectly cloudless night. As it was going away I caught it in my binoculars and verified that it was not a plane or any other object that I knew of. It was shaped like the planet Saturn, except it was flattened, meaning that it bulged in the middle. Then it was gone. It made no sound. Thanks
