Redish orange , traveling slowly and quietly!

When I saw the object, I was looking upward toward some high pine trees that had become infested with pine beatles. I saw a redish orange round object, approximately 50' in diameter, about 400 to 500 feet just above and to the north, of where I was standing. This object was traveling from SW to NE, at a rate of about 10 mph and not making a sound of any type. Immedately, I ran into our home, called the Birmingham Airport, identified myself, my location, what I had seen and the direction and speed, the object was traveling. I asked them if there was anything showing on radar, at my location. "No" was their answer.
