Bright orange object moving across sky

I went outside with my dog around 7 pm. I was facing west. I saw a bright orange light moving across the sky. It looked like it had spikes of light coming out at the top, bottom and both sides.

I called for my son and asked him, "What is that?" He replied, "I don't know, but it's below the clouds." My vision is a little fuzzy at night, so I asked him to get my glasses. He grabbed them and ran back out with them. The spikes coming off it weren't as pronounced when I saw it more clearly, but they were still there. My son thought it looked like it was on fire.

It proceeded to the north and after a couple minutes just faded and disappeared. There was no sound, and it wasn't moving very fast.

I googled "bright orange ufo over Colorado Springs", and there were several images that came up. Several of them looked exactly like what my son and I saw.
