Light sphere 50 yards overhead

A family of 4, all adults, college graduates, 3 with advanced degrees and one in law enforcement. We were camping at Mutton Creek Marina in the East campground. We had set up our chairs in a clear area to observe the Perseid Meteor Shower and had seen multiple meteors. Out of the north, about 50 yards above the tree tops was a sphere of light. It looked about the size of a frisbee from where we sat and traveled about as fast as a person walking. It went right over us and after traveling at that speed and height for about 200 yards it began to rise, straight up. It then began traveling southeast and sped up and then it turned into a streak of light and disappeared into the Milky Way. Amazing! There was no sound, no sign of windows or doors, only bright, white light.
