a orange/red ball of light flew in east central illinois [champaign county] followed by low flying jets in the same pattern.

i saw an orange-red ball not flashing floating in the sky. it was moving slow from east to west i looked through my binoculars at the light. it seemed to move close to the ground then up about 200-300 feet. it did this several times. as soon as the object went out of sight i heard several jet planes flying from east to west and very low to the ground. I am disabled and was waiting for a ride outside. there were farmers in the field just east of me and i don't know if they saw it too. i live in hte country and it was dark out. i know what i saw was real.
