Shape: Sphere
Duration:20 seconds
Orange sphere, zig-zag, hover, dissapear

My friend and I were sitting in my backyard by my shed looking at the sky and I noticed an orange sphere shaped object much like Jupiter that was bigger than the stars around it. It hovered for 5-10 seconds and then went straight up in a zig-zag motion. And took the remaining time to cover a good portion of the visible sky time flying up and left through the sky before disappearing.

There were no blinking lights on this which rules out aircraft.
