Tonight @10.25pm Saint George Island Florida we witnessed an orange light in the sky, moving at around normal aircraft speed - for about 30 secs we observed it and then it just turned and vanished. Note Eglin AFB - D3 sounding rocket site is not far from here. Can anyone identify what this might be? I have attached a low quality cell phone picture.

Many thanks in advance
