Orange light over Katy, TX seen 12/31/08

Observed an orange light moving from east to southwest at speed of a small propeller aircraft. Appeared to be larger than Venus, but smaller than the full moon.

Light seemed to flare in size however orange color remained the same. No sound was heard, speed remained constant during the duration of sighting. Many fireworks in view, however, this wasn't a skyrocket or firework. Light seemed to be descending when last seen.
