Light swarming around in the sky shaped as a fireball

I was outside having a cigarette looking directly at the woods behind houses that all have a good size 4 plus acres as we also have, circling around in the sky (very hard for me to describe properly) looking up, what looked like the form a fireball would resemble as it is big and round in the front and then slowly stretches into a tail shape but.. this was a ball of light, no color what so ever and it kept moving at a fast pace around a small area of the sky, I ran inside to grab my camera and while it still being there I had tried to take a picture 3 times but it was in the sky and my camera wasn’t catching it. After the fourth attempt I looked up and it was gone I will be going out there again to see if it shows up again. I am not a believer in this sort of thing and I am not crazy or stupid in anyway. We do NOT live anywhere near a city, I know this area well and I use Google earth and this was happening far behind people’s backyards in the sky. It’s not a hoax and this WAS something out of the norm.
