I saw a floating fire ball object that stopped and hovered for a few minutes then shot off in the air, took a clear picture

I was getting out of my car very slowly to walk into the house,I stopped and looked up to the sky. I come from new york and have recently moved down to Florida I am amazed on seeing a clear sky full of stars, accept this night there was a over cast and very few many stars out.

As I looked up i saw a bright ball of fire floating up and to left, I originally thought it was a flare or one of those lanterns that you can light and they fly away. Until it stopped and was just hovering the clous was behind it and it was bright yellow and orange like fire, I grabbed my cell phone and took a picture of it and as soon as i took a picture it started to move slow, so I took one more shot and it shot into the sky and it was gone. I have seen planes and helicopters my whole life. I Never seen anything do what it did that night.
