Small fiery orb zips erratically in the northern sky.

While waiting on a friend to leave, I was watching the northern sky, as we had been star gazing all evening.

I was alone, focusing on a star, when a single, small, orange light began to move horizontally.

With the movement, I could tell that the light was somewhat close and thought it may be a reflection on a spider's web. This was until the light started moving up and down, left and right, very erratically, but not all over the sky. It stayed within a small area in the sky. I then thought it may be a drone.

I watched it intently, by myself, for about 10 mins., move around. It never blinked or flickered once. The orange-ish light looked similar to fire, not electrical or gassy. It almost had a little haze around the orb. The size was small, comparable to the size of a large star.

My friend then comes out to leave, I tell her to watch, and she sees it, too. It lasted a couple of more minutes until vanishing. It just dissipated, like the fire had gone out.

I did feel an overwhelming sense, it brought me to tears, and I was covered in chills.

I've been a star gazer my entire life, even seeing two shooting stars earlier that night.

Never have I seen or experienced anything like this.
