I saw a bright orange circular object that hovered then zoomed off, it resembled fire but with more solidity..

September 21 2014 To whom it may concern, Last night at approximately 10:40 p.m. on Saturday September 20th 2014, I witnessed a circular object hovering above a building right outside my work place. I had just clocked off from work and went outside to grab a change of clothes. Four of my co-workers were outside smoking a cigarette. When I came out they were all staring up above the building directly across from the south side employee parking lot which was approximately 30 feet from where we were. As I glanced up to see what they were looking at I was immediately shocked at what I saw, a bright orange circular ball.

The object appeared to be the same height as a small aircraft but with a much brighter light. It was bright orange but not solid orange. It had changing orange hues within the craft, similar to the movements of fire, except that it looked more solid then fire. The center appeared to be changing from a darker orange to lighter orange. The object hovered for about 30 seconds from the time I stepped outside to witness it. After hovering the object took off at a very fast speed high up into the night sky. You could still see the faint orange ball traveling for about two minutes before completely disappearing. At that point you wouldn’t have been able to differentiate it from a star.

The best description I can give you is that it looked like a hovering fireball, however when it zoomed off there was no orange tracer like fire would leave. Also, while the orange ball was hovering there was very slight horizontal movement from left to right. My co-workers and I agree that it mostly resembled a floating fireball but with a solidity to it.
