Orange low flying orb

Roommate and I were eating a late dinner together when we spotted an orange ball of light flying low above the trees through the window. We’re unsure how far away it was, but it appeared to move in front of 3 radio towers, so possible a mile or so. Object was a bright orange light, orb in shape. It descended at a quick but steady pace into the trees and temporarily out of sight, maintaining the same elevation and moving in a smooth, non-linear manner. The first slope was gentle and the light was steady, not like a descending flare. It had no other lights visible. The object returned about five minutes later and was visible in the tree line before disappearing again. There was no sound and it was too small to be a traditional aircraft. We feel we would have seen multiple blinking lights, especially if it were flying that low. This is the second time we’ve seen this object. Upon looking at YouTube videos, this looks almost exactly like videos of orange ball UF! O sightings.
