I live under a fly path in Oldham near Manchester and I see planes passing by every day/night as they approach the airport. However today around 21.20 I have seen something different too.
A plane just passed above our house to start its approach to Manchester then when it was further away roughly above Ashton-under-Lyne I noticed a contrast single orange light passing above the house.
It was somewhat higher than the passenger planes around this area and it's travelled with constant great speed. I followed with my eyes until it's disappeared on the horizon above the peak district (took about 1.5-2 minutes). It's travelled in a direction about SSE (roughly towards London). I couldn't find anything on the Internet suggesting anything flying with constant orange light. BTW it had no sound whatsoever and it wasn't showing up on flight radar either as I checked that straight away. I do not drink and do not smoke funny things. Any idea what this could be?
