Bright Orange Blob observed moving across Evening Eastern Sky of Hyderabad

A fairly fast moving orange blob of light with no blink was observed at about 1915 hrs in Hyderabad from Balanagar Area (observer position : 17°28'2.75"N, 78°26'58.97"E).

First it looked like Mars/Procyon in lower angle and was found to be moving from East to South East in a pace similar to aircraft or slightly fast.

No sound was observed. Color was characteristically orange and faded as it headed away from the spot. Similar large blob was once observed going from East to North some three years ago at similar time. Satellite may be ruled out since the blob did not show any alteration in luminosity.

It can not be an aircraft since no sound or blink was observed and there can’t be such a bright tail lamp to it. Even if a craft shines it should fade as it angles away from the sun rays in setting time.
