After doing a temp conversation I am going to guess it was to cold for this orchid to be outside. Your orchid will probably be fine. Remember these type of orchids have thin leaves. So it won't take much for them to sunburn or get cold damage.

I would bring him inside. There are a few more cold months yet.

3 c might be a bit much for your milt. Mine can do down to 5 min but only for a night or so.
I would bring it in.

Bring it in gradually, though. Like into a sheltered garage. Going straight from cold to quite warm might weaken it even more. Best wishes for its recovery.

Thats cold damage and lack of air movement at night, I would say damp leaves at night with still air have done this,
Bring it inside straight away and put near a north window but not in direct sunlight.
These orchids can take below zero temps as ours do but you need gentle air movement (not direct as in air blowing on them) and they need to be in the centre of a shadehouse away from the sides also a clear polcarbonate or similar covered roof over shadecloth is best if they are in a shadehouse as this stops moisture decending on the plants on cold nights

Agree with everyone, looks like cold damage, have seen that in my experiment last winter. Bring your plant in, it may still recover.
