Saw sphere over treetops ,thought it was moon ,change colors, spin and split into two spheres

I am a retired RealEstate Agent. A fifty-five year old homemaker. My husband a retired Policeman and I were asleep on the evening of the occurrence. I awakened to go to the bathroom and as I looked out our bathroom window to the Southwest, over the treetops I thought I was looking at a full moon. As I started to wonder why the moon was so large and low in the sky, it slowly began moving and changing colors.Then it started to spin and split into two spheres. The colors had been yellow gold to orange, somewhat like a fire. I was in shock and overwhelmed. I said outloud "I can't deal with this" & went back to bed unable to talk about it for quite sometime but I'll NEVER forget
