Luminous translucent red sphere

I was visiting a friend in Dallas. At the end of the night, I went outside and waited for my friends to say goodbye. I felt as though there were someone standing near me, I turned and noticed a glowing red sphere. At first I thought my eyes were playinig tricks on me. Then I felt a bit of surprise as I realized this was not an illusion; instantaneously the object moved two feet back. I calmed myself and spoke to the object, complimenting it's colors. The sphere was approximately 12 inches in diameter and had what appeared to be divits spaced two inches apart on the surface. These divits were brighter and lighter than the overall object, which glowed a luminous red. Gazing at the sphere, I noticed it was translucent. I was distracted by my friend talking to me. As I turned back to see the object, it was gone. I looked around and noticed it had moved five houses down the street.
