I walked outside tonight when my boyfriend called for me to come see a strange light from the perspective of our front driveway. I saw a bright glowing saturated orange orb hover in the night sky.

At first, I thought it might be a planet (like Mars), but then I realized it was hovering, actually moving smoothly (intentionally) horizontally and vertically, was much larger and saturated in color than a planet would be.

Also, the light was glowing from within -- it wasn't directional or a "beam" of light, so it didn't look like a small aircraft or a drone. And it didn't have any blinking lights on it. It looked like a bright orange fireball that was somewhat stationary, but moving very intentionally at times.

I was in awe of this glowing ball and overwhelmed. It finally glowed really bright and flickered once, became instantly smaller, and then faded out to a small dot and disappeared as if it had quickly zoomed away.

We tried to capture it on our iPad and iphone, with one poor quality image to show for it.
