Orange flame looking object observed over Greer SC

My wife and I saw what looked like an orange flame moving slowly above our house. It was not round, but oblong with points at two ends at times.

The shape and size changed slowly, like a flame growing and shrinking. It was much bigger than a star, but not as big as the moon, maybe 10 to 15% as big as the moon. It was not distinct but seemed to come in and out of focus.

We could not gauge the altitude. It moved from in front of the house to over the house and seemed to pause, then moved back to the front again. Our house faces south east.

When I went in the house to get a camera, my wife said it seemed to shrink away to nothing before I came back.

She said it looked like the flame went out, not like it climbed in altitude.
