Bright Orange light in night sky

Was in back yard with my dogs and I looked up and a bright orange object was moving from east to west at a speed quicker than I have seen a plane or helicopter.

As I loss view from the tree line, I looked up again towards the east and saw an identical bright orange object traveling the same path. My first thought was these objects were on fire. Then wondered if they were rockets or such entering the atmosphere.

Anyway, as they flew past my trees, I lost visual contact but waited several minutes to see if I might hear a crash or explosion.

We live under a local flight path so have seen traditional airplanes at night. Have seen many falling stars in this area as well. Nothing like the fore-mentioned.
