red sphere follows us

the dates not exact. my friend and I were driving around one night around midnight when we noticed what looked like a glowing red hot air balloon following us in the sky it was pretty big like it was low- close to the ground. we stopped to take a look at it and it stopped briefly along with us and hovered over us then began to go back in the direction we came from. we tried to follow it but our vehicle could no longer keep up with it after a mile or so we were probalby going close to 100 following it south. then it veered southwest until it was quickly out ouf site. the shape never changed it remained a glowing red sphere resembling a hot air balloon. It was the second time I had seen an object like this, though the first time it was at a further distance away and was a couple months earlier
