Summary : I was watching fire works with binoculars, and I saw something weird. As I watched it, I ruled out the possibility of a plane or fire work.

Well, I was standing outside watching the firecrackers go off through binoculars, when i noticed something in the air. I focused in on it, and i saw that it wasn't a plane. it had red/orange lights on it, and around it. it was just kind of hovering, not moving like you see a plane. Then I lost site of it. I scanned the sky, and found it. It had shooted up at a very fast speed, and at a really steep angle. Now it was hovering over a field. I went inside to get my camera, and when i came back outside, it was gone. It never appeared again. Also, this has nothing to do with it, but a picture taked in the 50's of a UFO, well the people are my neighbors! The thing I saw was disked shaped, and it slopped up on the sides to form almost a triangle shape.
