Glowing orb floating at treetop level

One evening, at about 7 o'clock PM, I was looking out my window over my kitchen sink as I rinsed some dishes. A glowing, reddish orange orb was floating through the trees in my backyard. It was about 30 feet from where I stood and just about at my eye level. The orb looked about the size of a giant beach ball. Our yard fell away steeply just feet from the foundation. I watched this for several seconds as my brain tried to compute what I was seeing. I watched as it maneuvered through the dense trees, yet never came into contact with one. It then emerged from the other side of the woods and slowly climbed in altitude until it cleared the hill on the other side of the woods. It then disappeared in the distance. I listened to the local news reports and scanned the paper for days to see if anyone else had seen it. This happened in a heavily populated suburb. One week later, about 10 o'clock PM, I was driving to Blockbuster with my husband and we spotted the same orb near the edge of town. We followed it until it disappeared into the woods.

This happened in the summer of 1992 in Cincinnati, Oh. It has haunted me ever since then.

I was 45 at the time and a homemaker. We have witnessed several other strange anomalies in the years since this sighting took place. I know this sounds kooky, but as a child of 6, living in an orphanage in Iowa, I awoke one night to see 3 small alien figures standing next to my bed observing me.
