A red, yet transparent object with two orbiting lights moving very low to the ground without making a sound.

My partner and our friend were on the back deck tonight when I noticed something out the corner of my eye. When we turned to look, we saw a red, transparent object floating horizontally through the sky. It was spherical in shape and it had two bright red, shield-like objects orbiting around it. It was hard to gauge its distance from us but it appeared to be within 200 yards from where we were sitting. The object was very low in the sky and seemed to be just above the tree line. We watched it move for about a minute until it was out of our line of sight.

We felt entranced while watching it move and we were unable to say anything until it had gone. That may sound strange but prior to sighting the object my phone had frozen up. I'm an avid stargazer and I've ruled out any possibility of it being a plane or helicopter. The main reason for ruling out common air traffic is that there was no sound. We can all recall hearing crickets while the sphere passed by. The local radio station ran a story that many people reported seeing a "fireball" in the sky tonight, but those reports came in around 6:45pm when we saw the object closer to 10pm. I've never witnessed anything like this before.
