Orange round object appears dims and reappears no sound

Storms were rolling in and like normal my husband and I retreated to our front porch to enjoy the lightening show. We kept witnessing bright circular bursts of white light that reminded me of a flash and I kept question it b/c it was like no lightening I had ever witnessed in my life.

At about 2 am we began to see a orange shape circle off in the distance and I was drawn to it b/c it looked like a setting sun though small in comparison and it began to dim then went away and within a minute or so it was back as bright as could be in the same location it appeared to stay in the same position the entire time before once again dimming and disappering.

We live in the flight path of the Airport so I've grown accustome to the sounds and shapes of planes. The object had no sound like the planes that pass over our house with running lights on and landing gear down.

About 45 minutes to an hour after the event a plane did fly over our house and I remarked how we heard it and could distinctly see the red and white blinking plane lights.

During our encounter of this odd orange blob, I sent my husband running for our camera. I got one capture that when blown up looked like two curved smiles. The whole event lasted about 10 minutes and then within 1/2 hour we heard this odd tone that neither of us could place.

My husband, is usualy the logical skeptic, said there is no way it was a flare nor weather balloon because it remained in the same position and the way it dimmed and came back so bright was not typical of either.
