Orange glowing bell shaped object moving from east to southeast.

Hello, at approx 1:30 am, I was standing on my back porch facing east having a cigarette when a glowing orange bell shaped object rose up from behind some trees, not sure on distance, maybe 2 city blocks to a 1/2 mile away. This was east.

It rose up and hovered for a few seconds then it started heading away from me up and towards the southeast. There was no sound. I could not tell if it was spinning or rotating but it was shimmering.
