bright amber-colored light drifts silently across the evening sky

I was on a hill taking evening photos with my camera and tripod when I felt something watching me so I looked at the northern sky and happened to look right at this glowing object. My 1st thought was Venus because it was the same size and brightness of Venus. I continued taking photos of the sunset when I felt compelled to look at the object again and that's when I quickly remembered Venus is located further south and is a different color I also noticed this bright, amber colored light was drifting near me and then it arched slowly and drifted off on a southerly direction.

This is the 6th time to see this in a year. I always think it's Venus at first for some reason! I was able to point my camera towards this object and take a time exposure of it as it glided across the sky away from me. It's low in the sky, though it appear to be high up in the photograph. I live in a military fly-zone so I'm pretty sure this is not a civilian craft.

I have one other photo of this image that I took back in June of this year...I will gladly post it too....
