Bright orange light seen traveling NW to SE by 2 civilians in NE Iowa.

My wife and I were driving northeast of Arlington, IA, at 8 PM on November 30, 2013, when we noticed an orange light in the northwest sky heading southeast. We both thought it might be a meteorite entering the atmosphere. But the light did not diminish and disappear. Instead the light got brighter and continued to travel southeast at a continuous rate of speed.

The light did not flicker and traveled across our view southeast for at least 1 and a minutes, then it disappeared as suddenly as it had appeared.

We parked the car on the shoulder of the road and shut off the engine. There was no sound as the orange light traveled. We thought about the space station, since we have seen it travel across the sky, but the light was too bright and it was orange. Like a flaming pumpkin orange.

We called local TV stations, but there had been no other calls that evening
