Yellow/orange sphere hovering 20' off the ground above a neighbors yard.

There were military helicopters flying around the mountains to the north that day. I went outside to see if I could spot their lights and to the right I noticed what looked like a very bright yellow/orange ball of light sitting 20' above the ground approximately 2 houses east of me. I was trying to figure out what it was, as it was not moving.

Then after about 5 seconds it looked like it was starting to melt and just disappeared like someone flipped a light switch. No fire dripped off it. We don't have street lights and it was very dark out, so I couldn't see anything of a craft outline. No idea if it was a drone?

The light was about the size of a beach ball. Very strange. But not my first experience with strange things.
