Orange ball of light over house

We were outside watching an outdoor movie and swimming in the pool at 9:06 PM on September 5, 2020 we noticed a rather low, circular, fire ball, orange light hover over the house. We joked that it was a drone and somebody was watching us but then realized that it did not appear to have any LED lights or blinking lights. It was just one big round orange light.

We have previously watched the space station go over our house multiple times and occasionally other things in the night sky. This was definitely something out of the ordinary and very much unlike a plane or anything else we’ve ever seen.

It then went around towards the front of the house where my husband and brother-in-law followed it and watched it suddenly speed up rapidly and then it just disappeared.
