I saw a red ball in the sky not that high off the ground and it dissapeared

Hi My name is Codie. I'm from West Virginia. I'm 19 years old and last night I witnessed a ufo at 9:30 pm. Me and my girlfriends dad were on our way to take me home on a country or suburban road we were in his dodge truck talking and it was blocked from our view till we came up on it and it caught his eye and pointed it out to me and on the way to my house in this open grass field there was a giant red ball it was fire engine red it was not anything I've seen in my life before and I had no clue what it was cause it was low in the air and still and It made the hair on the back of my neck stand up and I wasn't feeling anything I just stared up at it just trying to figure out what it was and now my girlfriends dad is a really smart and it takes alot for him to believe something and when he saw it he slammed on the breaks and stopped in the middle of the road when we were looking at it it was really low solid round fire engine red ball it was very big it was about a football field away from us above this grass field that is huge could possibly have cows in it it had a white glow around it now it was not a plane not any kind of plane at that not the sun or moon it was hovering above the ground about the height of the top of a water tower and it had nothing to do with a water tower cause I just done my research and there is nothing there well when we were observing it a car came so we had to move well we knew it was something out of the ordinary so we went 10 seconds down the road to turn around and came back and it was gone I think other people witnessed it I tried to get pictures or a possible video but my phone died it had battery life too which doesn't explain anything to me I know what I saw and I wish you guys would write me back and let me know you got this and your thoughts about it I have more details and stuff and my girlfiends dad will tell you the story too I think I have something worth your time so please let me know
