Bright redish flame type object

My friends and I were camping sometime in 1999, and we saw a strange, bright red light in the distance (maybe 1/2 mile away from us). Two of us took a quick hike to the nearby ridge to get a better look. I thought at first that it was a campfire (it looked like a flame), but when we got a better look it was clear that the object was floating in the sky just above the trees; and it was lighting up the ground below it. It seemed to change shape (sort of like how a flame moves and changes); and its colors were a bright redish-orange.

The object moved very slow, but it did hover around methodically; yet not really precise either. There was absolutely no sounds from the object. The phenomenon lasted for about 10 minutes; and then the object literally shot into the sky at speeds that I didn't think were possible.
