Fiery circular craft spotted hovering in Jersey City and then vanishes

After watching the latest Spiderman movie with my family at Newport Center Mall in Jersey City we headed home. After leaving the mall garage, we cut through the BJ’s shopping center area and my wife (seated in the passenger seat) says, “What is that in the sky?”. A few seconds after, my cousin seated behind my wife saw it too. Since it was visible on the right side and I was driving I couldn’t see it initially. Then I opened the moonroof of my truck and I was finally able to see it. Shortly after my son saw it as well. It looked like a large circular fireball hovering over a distant city somewhere west of us in NJ. It was about as high as a plane would be flying. The appearance of the ball seemed like a glowing orange fiery light and it seemed like it had some type of aura. My wife’s first thought was that it was a plane on fire. But after watching the object for about 30 seconds that claim was quickly refuted. I asked if someone could take out their phone to! record it. My son immediately began to reach for his phone and as he started reaching for it to the second this bright orange object began to move North in a linear fashion. As it started to move this bright orange light that lit up the night sky began to diminish in a matter of seconds until it was completely dim and vanished out of sight. It’s almost as though it knew we were about to record it.
