Red-orange ball seen in sky in Melbourne, Australia

I had just come home from work and was standing outside the back door of my house at 00:59 Australian Eastern Standard Time in Melbourne, Australia, having a cigarette when I saw an round red-orange ball shape rise from the west.

The colour of the ball was very bright and it seemed to be pulsating as it travelled through the sky. I was standing directly under it as it passed over the roof of my house and I could not hear any noise as it passed overhead.

I ran inside to get my digital camera to take a photo of it in the sky and I also got a short video of it with my camera.

It travelled in a south easterly direction and proceeded over my house and continued travelling in a straight line over the roof of my neighbour house. I followed it until I could no longer see it in the clouds.
