Very low very bright amber/red ball of light up close and personal sighting.

On Friday August 29th at 9pm I was watching a movie in my house and waiting for my girlfriend to get home from work soon. During a commercial break i went out to smoke a cigarette on my front porch, after about three or four puffs, a moving, very bright amber light behind trees caught my attention. These trees are a small woodsy area about a football field or less away from where I was standing. This small patch of woods is on a small hill and is in between my neiborhood and the next neiborhood over, and basically separates the backyards of thehouses.

The amber light first caught my eye as I saw it through the gaps in the trees moving very slowly upward, it was very bright and then it rose above the tree line and was a very bright ball of amber/red light with a pulsing energy field around it, that was translucent and moving around the ball of light. My! adrenaline started pumping once it cleared the tree line because this u.f.o was up close and personal and was less than 300 feet from me, very low and about the size of a big beach ball or yoga ball and was perfectly circular including the energy ring around it. The amber ball of light began to turn red and slowly rose 15 feet above the trees, stopped and hovered completely still for about 2-3 min changing color back and forth from amber to red I watched the ball of light in complete shock this was basically 30-50 feet above houses across the street but everyone was inside except me. The ball of light was competly silent and after hovering for 3min started to move slowly toward me and once it was on opossite side of the trees it dropped 10 feet lower and started floating left toward a tree on my street then stayed still again, I turned around and ran inside to get my phone to get a video of it and when I came out it was slowly floating behind the tree and the light started to get smaller and the ball of light vanished behind the tre! e on my street while it was only 15 feet off the ground. I ran over to the tree to see if something fell on the ground or was still there but there was nothing anywhere. I called my girl friend after I calmed down and she was on the highway on her way home I told her what happened and as I explained it to her planes and helicopters started circling my neiborhood one after another and when my girlfriend was coming down the highway about five min from home she counted 12 airplanes and helicopters flying low above our area, they all had bright lights on them so were clear to see at night especially so low and so many. They circled the area until 2am. Most profound moment of my life by far, what I saw that day will be forever with me.
