White tall cylindrical object with bright yellow-orange light at the base

As we were walking up the driveway to our home, our 2 boys saw something in the sky and said "what is that, mommy!" I walked over to them and looked up in the sky and there was an elongated (north to south) cylinder object with a bright yellow-orange light at the base. It was flying lower than an airplane, but going faster than an airplane and flew horizontal as a plane would.

The white object was not solid, but waved much like a jellyfish would, and rotated in circles. The light at the base was constant, and did not flash. I immediately called for my husband, who does not even believe in UFOs and he was unable to come up with any explanation for what it was. It could not have been a balloon as it flew way too fast, and was not going up or down. The flight path did not make sense for the shape of the object.

It continued to fly and we could no longer see it after it went far enough. The object was silent and no noise was heard.
