Orange obect in sky

Last night (May 13) between 10:15 and 10:20 p.m. my son yelled for me to come into the backyard. There was an orange circular object in the sky and it appeared to be quite large. It travelled from the east to the northwest, and as it travelled it rapidly became visually smaller. As it travelled, at one point it dipped down, went east for a moment, then went back to travelling towards the northwest. The size at first from the ground looking up was between dime and nickel sized (Far too large to be a satellite, planet or star) and reduced to a mere pinpoint of orange light, then we could not see it anymore.
