Undulating Orange Light

I was walking to my car at about 8 PM on October 1 2014. I am located in the Flatlands section of Brooklyn. The sky was overcast. I looked over the my left and saw an orange light undulating from North or Northwest to South or South East. It wasn't going very fast, but I only caught it from the time it took to travel in between two buildings in my field of vision. The best way I can describe the light is that it looked like an orange flare. It would dim from time to time and then flare up again. I thought it might be a helicopter, but I've never seen a helicopter undulate like that (and they generally have running lights, etc, instead of a single orange light). I am not sure at what altitude the clouds were, I don’t think they were particularly high, but this object seemed to be just underneath them. I viewed the object for 30 seconds or less. I'd be interested to know if anybody else witnessed this. Thanks!
