Saw a bright orange star appear with the naked eye, went to get my binoculars to zoom in on it. It appeared to be a round ball and looked like It was on fire – intense orange glow (Like a mini sun).
It had no tail and no noise, though it was pretty far away, not exactly sure of the height but I would say higher than a airplane. It moved east to west very fast, in a straight line, then seem to change direction and went back west to east and disappeared into thin air.
After about two minutes, it came back again, same path and disappeared just like previous. My husband and son also saw this with me. 1st thought it’s a meteor, but it didn’t have a tail (it was just full round) and didn’t travel that fast, but way faster than an airplane.
