Orange ball like burning ember moving in erratic pattern about 5000 feet

I saw an orange ball moving erratically across the sky it was traveling about 200 mph it looked like a firework that was ready to fade out but it did not fade out and kept moving across the sky over me and over the horizon it dimmed for a few seconds when passing over me then got bright again as it disappeared from my sight.

It did not move in a straight line, it veered a little to the right and left unlike any airplane I ever saw. No noise and I am in the state forest and can hear plane noise normally.
