Circle shaped orange object sighted in southeast over Fortuna CA with two black dots in circle and no trail or tail

We had just come outside and we noticed a cirlce object in the sky. It looked like a fire ball but there was no tail or trail. It was probably about a holf a mile up in the southeastern sky and it was going away from us. I viveo taped it and upon zooming in i saw two back dots in the middle of it and it looked like the top and bottom were flat. It stayed in the sky until it finally faded away to the southeast. We wtched the news and listened for other reports but did not hear about anything. It was not a heliocopter or a plane. There were no flashing lights it was orange in color except for the two black dots that were off center.
