BROGHT RED/ORANGE BALL MOVING ,FIRST EAST, STOPPED AND RESUMED MOVING NORTH

IT WAS ABOUT 9:30 PM. MY HUSBAND WENT OUTSIDE TO HAVE A CIGARETTE AND HE CALLED ME TO COME OUT. HE WAS POINTING TO THE WEST UP IN THE SKY, THERE WAS A RED/ORANGE BALL MOVING TO THE WEST. IT SEEMED HUGE AND WAS VERY BRIGHT. THERE WAS ALSO AN AIRPLANE I BELIEVE COMING FROM THE SOUTH,BUT WAS BEHIND US. WE WAITED FOR THE PLANE TO PASS,WHILE WE WATCHING THE BALL STEADLY MOVING EAST.THERE WAS NO SOUND. THEN IT STOPPED MOVING FOR ABOUT THREE MINUTES.. MY HUSBAND WENT IN TO GET A PAIR OF BINOCULARS, AND IT STARTED TO MOVE NORTH. IT SEEMED TO BE GETTING SMALLER AS IF IT WAS MOVING HIGHER UP IN THE SKY. WE WATCH IT FOR ABOUT 7 MINUTES. WE ENJOY WATCHING FOR THE SATILITES GOING BY,AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A SATILITE CHANGE DIRECTION LIKE THIS,LET ALONE BE RED/ORANGE. WE HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS, DIDN'T EVEN THINK TO TAKE A PICTURE OF IT, WE WERE JUST IN AWE OF WHAT WE WERE SEEING.
