orange sphere burning at the center appears over my house

Me and a friend were swimming in my pool and had been watching meteors all night and then out of nowhere a bright orange sphere just appeared overhead about 3 or 4 hundred feet up. It was burning at the center but made no noises whatsoever.

We both watched it hover in one spot for about 5 to 10 seconds, and then it just started to move towards the horizon. It didn't move much faster than a bird would fly id say. We watched it disappear over the horizon and then asked each other if we really just saw that.

We saw many planes criss crossing the area for about 30 minutes after it disappeared too.

I would have gotten a picture but I was soaking wet and my phone was across the yard
