bright orange ball of light drifts noislessly and slowly over my neighborhood, then fades into clouds.

I was watching the eclipse of the moon on the winter solstice with my mom and neighbors. After a long while everyone had gone inside and I was left alone for a moment and noticed a glowing orange ball of light low in the sky around 100 yards or so away slowly drifting diagonaly across my neighborhood. My first thought was that it was a blimp or helicopter, but it made no noise, had no blinking lights and was only about 200 feet up. My mom came out and I could only point. She ran and knocked on the neighbors door and I could still only point and say "look". For the next 5 to 8 minutes we watched it drift over the neighborhood then straight up, hover for awhile, flash a couple times, then away into the clouds. we all took turns looking at it with my binoculars and we're all stumped as to what it was
