Orange lights meteor like object flies overhead

While outside on my porch smoking a cigarette and speaking with a friend on the phone when I noticed what appeared to be a meteor moving South to North around 3000 feet in the air. As it moved closer I noticed no sound and about six orange lights below the object.

I was taken aback when it moved sideways briefly then returned to its northern movement always keeping the same height from what I could observe.

As it slowly passed overhead I was able to stare directly up at it and I've never seen anything of the sort in my life.
