Orange light passing over Knoxville at 20:50, sept 24

Orange light appeared between the moon and Saturn in the southwest. It showed up about two minutes after the ISS passed over. Intensity was a bit brighter than the ISS but was about twice as large and orange colored. It moved at about the same speed to the northeast directly overhead and did not strobe or blink like an airplane might. After about a minute or two, the light disappeared. It did not slowly dim like the ISS arid but rather winked out. Looking at the small amount of video I took, I could not see the same color but did see a slight flash as it disappeared from sight.
