Very large orange flame like craft similar to lantern seen flying low and fast following coastline

Around 1.00 am on New Years day I was walking home with my partner.

In the sky we saw a unexplainable object, the best description I can give is that it was like a lantern.

The 'object' looked like some form of rectangular transparent package with a very large orange flame inside.

It would be logical to think that it was a flaming weather ballon etc or even a comet from my description but I am adement it was something else.

The 'object' was too large and travelling too fast with a very steady precise course (following the coastline) to be anything other than a steered craft.
