acorn shaped with flames and a ring of white lights on bottom

after hearing what i thought sounded like a car accident up the street i walked out on my front porch to investigate.across the road from us is a field of trees,rising up from behind the trees i saw what appeared to be an acorn shaped craft with flames coming out of the bottom with a ring of white lights around where the flames were coming out.

right away i went back inside and told my wife "come out here quick"she did and witnessed it also,but she didn't see it in as much detail as i did as she's near sighted and i'm far sighted.

we watched the object pass over head from south-east to north-west without making a sound and no flashing aircraft lights.i would guess at between 1,000 and 1,500 feet up.
