Bright orange object in front of woods

I was about 12 years old and my friend and I were standing on his porch. The porch overlooked a wooded area that was approximately 150 yards away. A bright orange object appeared in front of the woods. It looked about 15 feet high and 15 feet wide. The object was round and made no noise. My friend ran inside to get a camera after watching it about a minute. I continued watching and all of a sudden it took off towards the sky. It moved at a rate of speed that was incredibly fast! It took off just seconds before my friend arrived with the camera. I am now 40 years old but I will never forget that experience. It was truly amazing and the object seemed to be able to hear and watch us. The object took off just before my friend arrived to take a picture.
