silent objest with rippling effect

i was outside about 10 pm and the night was clear.i was looking at orion when i noticed an orange glow to the right. i saw what appeared to be a "bat" shaped object.that is the closet thing i can compare the shape to. it seemed to be glowing slightly orange on what i would call the main body only. the glow then went away.it was a brownish black color and had no lights or sound. it was very easy to see against the night sky. it did not leave a trail and was going to the north-northwest.it moved very quickly,and was very high, although not as high as a jet would be. the thing about this that i can't understand is that the "wings" seemed to ripple. each wing moved at the same time per ripple.it was like from the body a third of the way out the wing, then from there to another third of the way out and again from there to the end of the wing.it moved in a perfectly striaght line and by the time i had turned around as it went over head, it was gone. the size was about half of my closed fist at arms length.i have no idea what it was, but sure wish i knew.
