Yellowish/Orangish oval shaped object flying northbound

I was sitting in my backyard when I looked up in the sky and saw what looked like a street lamp flying in the sky. It was the color (yellowish/Orange) and the shape (ovalish/circlish) flying northbound. The light was zig zagging and also moving straight up/down and left/right. I had never seen anything like this before and it gave me the chills. I ran inside and yelled for my brother to run outside. We ran to the front yard/street where there were no visual obstructions. He witnessed the same thing I had. While the object was travelling north, The oval/circle shaped light dimmed at one point to somewhat of a dot like it would have if it were really far away, however it was in the same general area and then the light went back to normal. Eventually the object still zigzagging, moving up/down and left/right travelled so far that I couldn’t see it anymore.
