Red glowing sphere in night sky of our backyard

First of let it be known, we live near a coast guard base and a large airport and see all types of aircraft, helicopters you name it this wasn't anything like we have ever seen before!

After fireworks died down, on the Fourth of July, I saw a bright red sphere in the sky moving closer it made no noise and we thought at first it was a very large flare.

I saw it at first and as it started moving closer with no noise it caught my husbands attention. We followed it and my husband shown a flashlight at it.

When he did the sphere made a weird whistle noise then turned and sped up.

Fireworks don't hover and them speed up.
