    Last night (June 11) at about 11:00pm PDT (-7 UTC) I saw through my 
    binoculars a
    brightish (about mag. 2.5) reddish-orange satellite moving from North to 
    the SE.
    When it crossed the line it was about 80 degrees up. Unable to id this 
    one, and
    I have never see a satellite that color before.
    I believe that some satellites are a golden color but not the color of Mars.
    Any help iding this is appreciated.
