A Neonish Red Sphere Appeared in the Night Sky

While my friends and i were walking outisde, I was looking up into the sky when i see this Neonish Red Colored Sphere. I mean, i was staring into this one spot in the sky for like a minute and it just appears out of nowhere. My friends and i started to hear noises, sounding like an engine. We assumed it was a car, but there was no cars to be found. The object was coming twords us at an incredibly fast pace for about 7 seconds and then it started to drop down while still coming our way. It was starting to drop twords tree's and was hard to be seen. We could still see parts of its neonish color when it vanished. It seemed to be far away from us, but the size of the object was pretty big.

First time that we had experianced something like that. Even when the object vanished we still heard the "engine" sound. Thats when we decided to head back inside cause it scared us badly. Also, right before that object appeared, my friend was saying to himself, " I wish something memorable or exciting would happen" and it happend indeed.

This Sphere also did not leave a trail like a shooting star, meteor, or like a flare. It also did not have a "flare" effect like a flare would have when being shot into the sky.
