Observed pink/orange glowing ball "bouncing" along railroad tracks for length of @ 2 city blocks, then shoot straight up and disappear out of sight

I observed one pink/orange glowing ball, @ 3 ft. in diameter "bouncing" along railroad tracks for the length of @ 2 city blocks, this occurred slowly enough for me to follow it down the 2nd "block" at a distance of @ 25 yards. When the ball reached a bridge over a small creek, it shot straight up into the air and disappeared out of sight range. At the time, I was @ 10 years old, and have never found a reasonable explanation for this phenomenon. I have considered ball lightening, or St. Elmos fire as opposed to intelligently operated alien craft.
