Orange fiery light that flickered then disappeared.

My friend and I walked outside around 9:50 on May 31, 2013. We were going to my car, and when I pulled from out of her driveway, we saw a big rounded rectangle that was a bright fiery orange. We just jokingly said, “Look it’s a UFO!” then, as we watched it we noticed its flying pattern (south to north). It had no blinking lights and it hovered more than it flew. As we watched it, it started to flicker and while it was flickering, we saw three light sources. It then disappeared. We used logic to discount anything that was illogical. We did not have a camera on us to take a picture or video. We proceeded to go inside and do some research. We read many accounts that saw the same things we did.
