Orange-Red Spherical object sighted over Plymouth/Northville, MI @ 23:00 EDT

Was out on my back deck watching neighbors set off commercial grade fireworks, 22:45 Hrs EDT. An orange-orange red spherical object appeared from nowhere, in the North Western sky.

I cannot say how far this was from me (see below), actually, or at what altitude with any assurance, but, it was a Half Dollar size by approximation to my eye.

~22:50 Hrs. EDT During the fireworks display, the object moved with instantaneous motions. (ie. moved from place to place in a blink of your eye. Moving horizontally.

Object seemed to be over Northern Plymouth / Northville, MI Townships during this observation.

The object moved several times at instantaneous speed then remained stationary for the last aprox. 2 mins of observation then accelerated vertically, (very fast)-Eye blink speed and vanished.

I took no pictures as I supposed, at a distance, they would just another meaningless blurry image.
