Shape: Unknown
Duration:10 seconds
Low flying, small, lanternish look. No sound.

We were in the backyard after sunset but before it was dark. Watching the neighborhoods' mortar display.

Saw the object travelling from north to south over the backyards of the houses on S Acacia. It was travelling in a very straight line at a slowish speed, maybe 30mph. It made no sound at all. It was only maybe 200 feet up, probably less.

At first I thought some sort of lantern.  It had an orangish light within it. The shape and build was indiscernible. It was most definitely not bright. It was not very big, maybe the size of a medium to large cooler.

We watched it continue in that very straight line south until we could not see it against the sky any longer.

Definitely can't explain what it was. If it was a drone I would expect some noise.
