Bright orange/red half-moon looking object with what looked like a wavy flame tail.

it was around 3:20am me and my Friend who was out picking up some donuts, going down the road next to our house. heading north. when we got down to the road we needed to turn at head to the donut shop, about 100 - 75Ft i saw over the tree tops a orange half-moon shape object in the sky, at first when i saw it i tough it was a half-blood moon. but when i saw it. it looked like it was about two - two and a half time lager than the moon we see in the night sky. it was a very bight orange. it only got to see it for about 2 - 3 secs until we turned down t the road,i told my Friend (who was the one driving) he wanted to see it but it was a bit to late at the moment. then when we turned to the road going to the shop, for about 3 - 4 Min's ride to the shop. i saw it a few more time over the north west area where i seen it the first time, by the time i seen it the 3rd time, it didn't look like no blood moon to me, it looked more like a huge fire ball. where i saw some wave coming from the back of it. and every time i saw it i told my Friend to look but he was always to late to see it. and he really wanted to see it. so after we got our donuts, came back. i was looking over there again to the north west area heading home on the sane. path it was around 3:35. and it wasn't there by the time we got back home i tough to myself, that couldn't been the moon since the moon can not go around the earth that fast with in such a small time frame, then i realized that was the north west area, and the moon cant go over in that are since the moon raises from the east and sets into the west. it was strange. when i did see it. it looks like it was slowly moving downwards to the earth, with the naked it it looked about a good 100 - 150ft big. might of been bigger. so i started to looking more into this, and i couldn't really explain what it was. all i know was it was a huge flame looking thing in the sky.
