This was a bright orange ball that was seen by others above ocean.

I was at work at about 3:00am I went outside to have a cigarette and noticed a bright orange ball in the sky above the harbor which is about 4 blocks away. It was about the size of a dime at arms length. It hovered there for about five seconds then traveled east at a high rate of speed leaving a tracer behind. I don't think this was an emergency flare or plane because of the brightness of it and the speed that it traveled at.
