Orange flickering light northwest of Houston observed from Highway 290

While driving northwest on highway 290, I observed an orange light directly ahead of me, high up and flickering as if it were a flame.

It moved slowly toward the northeast, and though I was driving near 70, I didnít seem to get any closer. It took a slow turn toward the southeast, parallel to 290.

The roof of my car began to obscure it, and I had to lean forward and look to the right to keep it in view, glancing every few seconds at the road to keep from swerving. During one of these glances, the object either disappeared or darted off.

The whole even lasted maybe 30 seconds.
