Orange light hovering above tree line then disappearing upwards

I woke up from my sleep due to being hot. Decided to go have a drink of water and a cigarette. I was in my garage with the garage window open leaning against the window seal. About 250 yards away there is a treeline. As I was looking out the window, I noticed a solid orange light zip up above the trees. It hung in place for approximately 20 seconds then proceeded to zig zag back and forth upward,pausing in place momentarily every few zigs. It left a faint trail as it moved. I tried to capture a picture and video on my mobile phone but all it would capture is a solid black screen. I noticed an airplane with a blinking light coming in the UFO's direction. The orange light vanished in the blink of an eye upward as the airplane approached. I waited for a few more minutes to see if it would come back but it never did.
