Changing orange object over treeline.

I was standing outside talking on the phone around 11:50 P.M. I was walking on my driveway/sidewalk. I just happened to look up, and I saw an orange sphere over the treeline. I didn't know what to think, at first I thought it was the moon. Then I realized harvest moon is only once a year, and that would be in November and not in July. I sat down on the driveway, and notice the object was rising upwards. Then the object started shrinking down to a smaller sphere. Then a black line cut back through it and it looked like the bottom piece "fell" off. The bottom piece disappeared and the top piece formed into a triangle. I was trying to explain it to my friend over the phone, and he went outside to see it, but he couldn't. Probably being because we live quite a distance away from each other. So I went inside to tell someone and my brother wouldn't believe me. I went back outside and the object was shrinking off into a line. Finally it just went away, and never came back.
