Red and orange light moved fast with strong light tail and disappeared.

We were sitting outside talking at our camp site at Lost Lake campground and resort. It was dark and there was a fire ban at the time so it was darker than usual. All of the sudden, a red and orange circular light appeared in the sky between two large trees. It moved towards us, almost in an arch pattern, with a strong light tail and then disappeared. It wasn’t too close, more off in the distance, but clearly visible. It almost looked like a firework or flare but there wasn’t any sound that normally comes along with those. Plus, with the fire ban in place and heavily enforced rules at Lost Lake, there is a very small chance anyone was lighting anything on fire. It is also covid rules so the campground was only at about half capacity. The whole thing lasted 15 seconds or less. Myself and one other person were completely sober and the other two had a little to drink. We all saw it.
