Red Orb Seen Being Chased By Military Aircraft Over Cranford NJ

About 10:30pm last night, 8/8/2020, I was outside walking my dog when a light caught my attention, it was a bright red/orange solid orb in the sky, it went left extremely quick from the position it was in and then right to the same original location, it then came towards my location at en extreme rate of speed. I then noticed that 2 V-22 Osprey were following it, I've seen them multiple times since Bedminster Golf Club is just a few miles from here, in the video you can see the ospreys lights blinking showing the navigation lights while the orb I saw never blinked and when it passed me went straight up into the air extremely fast and was gone. Before it disappeared, a fighter jet of some kind went flying over extremely fast and loud as well seeming to be chasing whatever was in the sky.
