Further Description of Sighting: We went out to watch the space station go by at 8:54pm. In the NW sky, we saw a bright orange/red ball travelling to the SE. It was not flashing and had no other lights. It appeared larger and brighter than the space station.
We were unable to see any additional details with binoculars. It was hard to find and track with our small telescope, but still appeared only as a round ball.
As it got farther to the SE, it did get dimmer and I eventually was unable to find it.
Four pictures are from my Nikon D200. Motion is from my instability on a long exposure
