Brilliant Orange Orb/Sphere Moves Across Sky

My family and I were taking a walk when we noticed a super bright orange orb/sphere in the sky. It was a steady (not blinking) brilliant light that was unlike any type of plane/helicopter/star Iíve even seen.

It was moving across the sky pretty quickly. It moved from South to Southwest. I pulled out my phone and was able to take a video of the object. It was a cloudy night, so I saw it move across the sky then I was able to see it in front of a group of clouds.

As it continued to move in a Southwest direction it eventually disappeared behind the clouds and I didnít see it again. Total time of sighting was approx. 1-2 minutes.

About 10 minutes after that I saw what appeared to be a military aircraft coming from the direction of where we saw the sphere heading.

My guess would be that the military craft pursued the sphere, then when it broke pursuit it turned around and appeared to be heading towards Whiteman Air Force Base.
