A very small, reddish dot. Very similar to a satelite but not white and much faster.

Was sitting on my front steps (letting the dog do her thing) facing almost directly east. Saw a small, reddish-looking dot moving toward me. Assumed it was a satellite but it was moving much, much too fast for it to be a satellite.

As it came over it made an arching turn to the SW and went quickly out of my viewing area.

This object was moving much faster than any satellite I’ve ever seen and ten times faster, at least, than the ISS. It made no sound at all.

I’ve been a sky watcher for most of my sixty years; never seen anything like this and I’m convinced this was an object no one will be able to explain.
