Sun was up but setting. observed object that looked like a star but brighter. no other stars were visible. i was seated and watching objuct for a hour or more as sun set. object moved slowly from place to place in about a 20 degree area straight up from my position. i was seated and my reference position was stable so i know for sure object was moving back and forth throughout the observation. after the sun set (about 15 minutes) object turned orange then red then brown then faded out (aprox time of fading was 20 minutes). to me this appeared to be the sun setting on the object above. the object apeared to stay at the same altitude and i can only guedd the altitude to be very high. perhaps 50,000 ft. due to the setting sun affect being about 15-20 minutes after ground level sunset. i took several pictures of the object from two different cameras. i cannot tell if the object was zig-zag in shape or round, while i zoom into picture or if it was an artifact from it being a digital camera. never seen anything like it after 54 years of life. i cannot say that object was drifting due to wind because heading changed many times.
