Orange ball, fast moving at low altitude with no sounds

Seen with my mom, dad and brother and some couple of neighbours, when I was around 10 year old. However I remember the evening with distinct clarity. Orange Ball low altitude, cloud level, moving from east to west, took not more than 10 to 15 seconds to cross the entire sky from east to west. No sounds at all. Everyone looked at it with a 'wow, what a sight'. I still remember clearly and have not seen anything close to it even after so many years. There were newspaper reports the next day reporting the same sighting in nearby city of Nagpur as well.
