Was it a UFO? Was it alien? I don't know but it was crazy weird.

This evening, we were watching stars, and planes flying overhead, from our deck. We then saw a bright orange light coming from the southwest direction. It was constant and not flashing; it did, however, have streaks or lines of light arcing from the top and bottom. It was very bright and seemed large given the distance and the amount of light. It did not fly in a straight path as several times it seemed to "wobble" side to side before continuing forward.

After approximately 15-20 seconds of this the light seemed to waiver back and forth then suddenly disappeared completely. We took photos and video but given that it was with a cell phone they are terrible quality.
