Duration: 5 Minutes
Orangish ball of light traveling quietly near my home, like a wave & bouncy for around 5 minutes. Hartford NY

We live overlooking farmland with treelines and mountains in the background. The night was clear with millions of stars and also a shooting star. No clouds to be seen. There was heat lighting miles away past the mountains. I didn't hear any thunder. Just a quite night. My bedroom is on the top floor which has sliding glass doors so I can see everything clearly. I noticed this object which was sort of orangish coming our way. It wasn't moving like a plane or helicopter so I told my husband to check it out. We were baffled because it was roundish, but not perfectly round and was moving slower than a plane and was about the size between a golf ball and tennis ball. It came closer to the house and I was a little scared because I thought it was coming closer and closer to my window. I almost thought maybe it was a comet at first, but then it turned and went towards the cornfield next to us. I did not see any tail on the object and the way it was moving clearly was not a comet. We watched as it just floated quietly but also had like a wavy bounce to it so it didn't look like it was traveling perfectly straight. It looked like something that was observing its surroundings. We watched it just floating along just slightly above the treelines as it dissapeared over the treelines so we couldn't watch it anymore. I was told maybe it was a fireball from the lightning, but the lightning was miles away and this thing was hovering in a bouncy wavy effect for over 5 minutes treeline level traveling slower than I would think a fireball would. We could of watched it longer if it didn't dissapear over the treelines.
