Location details: moving northeast, then changed to due east high in the southern sky over Richmond

Shape: Changing
Characteristics: Aura or haze around object, Changed Colo

Very high altitude - slow moving - no contrail - very bright

I saw the object at appx 4:40 p.m. moving in a north easterly direction. Using power binoculars, it appeared to be round and bright. However, I'm pretty sure that was a reflection of the very light cloud cover at that location. It cleared the wispy clouds and then appeared to be long but still very bright. Red and gold colors. Hard to tell if it was a reflection, which I assumed it was.
Again, it was very slow, very high, very bright and changed direction.
