Sighting Details

I was getting ready for work (I work the night shift). I noticed a bright orange light on the western horizon. The object was an orange glowing orb with no blinking lights. It was self-illuminated. It travelled from West to East, coming from over the Pacific and flying toward the mainland. I called my wife to bring her camera and she took 5 photos and a video. When we looked at photographs she took of it, it looked like crazy worm-like snapshots with a bright orange color. With the naked eye it appeared to be travelling smoothly, but with the digital camera zoomed-in, the behavior was extremely erratic, as the video shows. I immediately checked the location of the ISS and found that it was on the day-side of Earth over Russia. It disappeared behind cloud-cover on its way East.
