Bright Orange Light overhead in a straight orbital type flight.

A group of us having dinner outside at the beach saw a bright orange light overhead heading east to west. The orbit was similar to a satellite so we can only assume that it was a satellite with its rockets on to gain speed or altitude. The object came overhead and continued in a straight line until out of sight. No sounds, very exciting to see. It was not a meteor.
