Space Shuttle presumed sighted in NC after recent night launch

Just mentioning, we know it was the space shuttle, appeasring to pass through Orion. Visible as a steady orange glow, small star-sized, and even saw a white "spark" jump off in an arched pattern. Maybe a rocket being ejected and burnt? Question, even though this was a known object, did others see it? Not an impressive sighting, but very interesting and neat. Thanks.
