Summary : Brite orange glowing object passed overhead.

At 12:30am on july 30 1997 while watching a meteor shower on the shore of Cutfoot Sioux I observed a object that appearied in the south east sky. At first it was a small orange body giving me the impresion that I was looking at another meteor but the object just got larger and brighter, after seeing the object grow in size and brightness it continued to travel across the sky with a slight wobble in it path (like viewing a object through hot air). This wobble lasted for about 30 seconds then it continued to travel in a stright line. Its speed also slowed down as it crossed the sky. As it passed overhead the bright orange glow started to disapate. This allowed me to make out a flashing light on the upper surface of the craft the light flashed about every second. The craft passed overhead at about 10,000 feet. As the craft disapiered into the trees behind the campsite I heared the slight roaring sound of jet engines. Flight path was from the south east to the north west. No sonic booms. are we test aircraft that can fly after entering atmospher?
