Huge bright red/orange oval craft moved straight across the sky on July 4, 2013 at 11:15pm Long Island, NY

I heard an airplane and live near JFK airport. I looked up and saw a plane. At the same time I noticed a very large, well-defined, very bright red/orange oval (or perhaps cigar shaped) craft very high in the sky. It moved methodically and quickly in a straight line. It didn't pause or stop or hover, it kept moving at an even pace. I observed it for about 20 seconds until it began to fade and finally disappeared completely. It didn't flicker, but it remained incredibly bright redish/orange before it moved out of sight and faded. It was a very clear night, not cloudy.

I'm normally skeptical though I do believe there is life elsewhere in the universe. I don't drink or take drugs and I was completely alert while viewing this. I didn't have time to call anyone to see it and didn't want to take my eyes off it.
