    Hi Ron,
    I observed it (2013-015-A) last night at 20h04.1m UT in BOO constellation at mag 3-3.5 and I took a series of pictures.
    I also observed it from UMi to Boo using binoculars.  I can confirm the characteristic orange color.

     Used Heavensat with a 13114.8131 elset, 39130/13015 A was seen entering
    Draco essentially on time and on track.
    Rough magnitude estimate 4. There may have been a slight orange tinge to
    it. Also may have been a variation in magnitude but it entered shadow
    soon after I saw it so that is questionable.
