I saw a flying craft that was unlike anything I've ever seen.

Approximately three weeks ago, my mother, my 3-year-old son, and I were returning home from shopping at about 8:30 at night. We were on our back porch and we saw a red and orange, roundish mystery objest flying up above about a half mile away. We were all instantly enthralled with the object beacuse it had virtually no form, it was glowing, it was silent, it would stop in mid flight (float would be more like it), and then it would change direction and go in reverse. After about twenty seconds of watching it, the thing started dropping a few burning embers that would burn out before hitting the ground or trees. That was when it started getting really weirs. We thought whatever it was was going to crash but it keep hovering over head, moving very slowly. It continued to do so fo almost another minute and a half and then it started to drop quite a lot of burning embers to the ground (the object itself did not look like it was on fire at all) nad then it just disappeared. It was the strangest thing I've ever seen in my life and I am writing this because I saw an article in the local paper a couple weeks ago about different people witnessing the same thing.
