blueish/orange football size object over fishing spot- no sound

I was fishing with my two brothers in Minn/Canada Boundary Waters. We have been to this camping site numerous times. The sky was very clear and weather was ideal. I was up late watching the fire and putting it out. I saw another group of people camping across the lake at another site. They were loud making some noise for the 4th of July. My brothers and I went to bed and they asked if I put out the fire. I comfirmed but was worried about embers. I walked outside and saw a blueish /orange football size light in the air. I looked at it for a minute and it started moving toward our island. I woke and called out my brothers. One came out side and watched the object move with me. I thought the other campsite my be shooting off some fireworks- at this time, the other campers, were quiet. The object moved closer and erraticly- not like a roman candle. The object moved toward us 100yards and my brother and I were getting scared. We were yelling look at that and asking each other what it could be. Then it moved real close and we moved inside the tent. My oldest brother called( who remained inside the tent) called us idiots who needed to go to bed. Well my other brother and I peaked out the front and the blueish/orange football size object move along the side of the island and down to the lake side. I got up and my brothers followed me. I went toward the side of the lake the object moved and saw nothing. Weird!!! In the lake ? Still do not know to date what that could have been. I am a scientist today and would not believe it unless I have saw it for myself.
