Bright red circular object seen in the night sky around Steelville MO

While sitting around the campfire at Huzzah Valley near Steelville, MO, one women jumped up from her lawn chair and yelled, "What is it?!!"

Four of us saw a bright red-orange orb with ‘tentacles’ extending from around it. Don't know if the color was due to fire or lights.

As we watched the object, two campers at the next camp sight ran over and said there had been another orb that went in the other direction. We watched this bright ‘light’ as it went steadily across the night sky (on occasion moving in a zig zag fashion).

As to size and distance; not sure because of the night and nothing to compare the size to. One lady took two pictures that we are hoping when enlarged we’ll be able to zoom in to see the UFO.
