    Hi Chris,
    I am in Uley Gloucestershire and tonight at 21:03:28 there was a very bright
    ORANGE satellite or debris going over.  I regularly look at the ISS and that
    is bright white, but this was very orange, like a fire colour.  Was the ISS
    due over tonight at this time?  If not I have no idea what it was, certainly
    was not an aircraft as no noise at all and was too bright.
    I must have missed checking the ISS times if it was the ISS but very unusual
    Cheers, Julian
