Round yellow object escaping from storm

My husband, sister and I were all standing outside facing North watching a storm come in. It was quite windy with large clouds, and the sky was becoming pretty dark quickly. I was the first one to look Northwest when I saw a perfectly circular yellow object, with bright white light surrounding itself heading east. I pointed it out to my sister and husband. We observed the object moving perfectly straight through the air. I thought it may be a balloon but it would have been moving sporadically, and this was not. We watched as the object continued to head east and then all of a sudden it turned to head south, the only direction that still looked clear and unaffected by the coming storm. I'll never forget the event, we live right next to an airport and I love watching the different planes and jets come and go, and this was nothing like anything I had ever seen.
