Small orange orb hovering in lawn

I was laying awake in bed attempting to sleep and for I guess curiosities sake I decided to look out the window by my bed. Peering through the blinds I saw what appeared to be a little larger than a beach ball sized bright orangish orb that looked to be spinning and hovering in place about 30-40 feet away from my window. I was very frightened by this and after staring for a few seconds, I looked away and closed my eyes.

Not wanting to believe what I saw, I quickly looked out again and it was still there, hovering and spinning like before. Convinced and thoroughly frightened, I laid down and closed my eyes and just hoped whatever it was would go away, and what felt like minutes passed before I heard what sounded like a jet flying right beside my house.

I looked outside again for the last time, and it was gone. In hindsight, the jet might have been Barksdale AFB chasing after this object. It was definitely a surreal experience.
