saw bright light ascending

I was at work. I usually take a smoke break at about 10. I, in fact, looked at the clock before I went out. My job runs on keeping track of times, so I know it was 10. I usually like to go the the roof of our building so I can stargaze and the roof offers the least amount of street lights.

I was looking in the direction of the big dipper when I saw a large orange light (orb?) floating upwards.I thought for sure it was a star, then I kept watching and it slowly started floating up. I could tell because a star to the left of it was a reference point I used. It was floating very slowly-if I didn't have that star to the left I wouldn't have thought it was anything but a star. There were some clouds in the area and it seemed to go into a cloud. -or vanished. I stuck around and lit another smoke to see if I would see anything else-or to see it pop back out of the cloud-I could see the top of the cloud. It never came back out of the cloud.

It was a solid light, no flickering or pulsing. I got very excited during the sighting, I was hoping to watch more. I gave myself another 10 minutes to look but never saw anything in the area.

I did go back out to the roof about an hour later to see if I was just looking at a star, but the clouds had moved and there was no stars like what I'd seen.
