Large orange ball moving slowly and stopping in the sky

Outside with my friend saying goodbye I notice a large bright circle on the sky. I thought it was a planet, my friend said maybe venus, so i went inside the house to get my camera and told my dad you can see a planet and to come check it out.

I started snapping a few pictures when my friend says, "is it moving?" I focused back at the light and off my camera and noticed in fact it was! Slowly moving downward towards the horizen line then stopped again.

I changed my camera to video mode and started recording. It then started moving left along the tree line in the distance prolly about 20 miles away or so.

We then proceeded to follow it up the street walking 100-200 feet away from the house. It would stop and move constanly.

It flickered several different colors at one point from blue to green to orange and red. It was definately not a plane with blicking lights; this was way too big.

It eventually went below the tree line so we got into my dads truck and went to a higher point few streets over and I started recording it again. It made no sound.

We watched as it sat still for about 5 minutes then it proceeded to go below the horizen line again.

The 3 of us stood there in awe of what we just saw, all agreeing it was not a plane or helicopter.
