Glowing orb with sharp turns in Washington ,DC

It was a humid night, a little hazy, you could see the moon and maybe one star. I was in Meridian Hill Park in NW Washington, DC.; looking at the sky around 9:30 pm I saw a strange light moving slowly across the sky heading South. It abruptly made a 90 degree left to the East then after a while appeared to be lowering and faded out. It looked like a large bright planet, a warm colored glowing orb. I couldn't tell how high up it was, but I think it was about 200ft when it faded out.

My friend who was with me had seen a diamond shaped UFO up close as a 10 year old and also seen others just like this one.

It didn't seem to be moving that fast but did cover a large area in a short time. It faded out what appeared to be near Howard Univeristy Hospital (or on 14th near Belmont st) to the north west of the Capitol.

If anyone has any idea what that might have been, please let me know.
