orange or amber craft darting around the trees in back of my house, slightly above the trees maby 30 feet or less, probubly less

i saw a craft (for lack of a better description) aprox. 70 to 100 ft across,round in shape, looked to be made of light, i know that dosent make any sence to me eather,could have been covered in an orange or amber light, i noticed it at 10:15 pm central time about 200 feet behind the house, the first thing i saw was a light coming at me fron the north at high speed, suddenly came to a dead stop over the edge of the tree line and sat for a second or 2, then darted to the west about 500 yards, damn near instantly, zipped back to the southeast ,eraticly seemed to wobble and go up and down no more then 10 to 20 feet, then it went back north dont know how far couldnt have been over 100 ft, because i could still see the glow through the trees, then it came back tword me(south) and stoped for about 30 seconds,no movement at all just that strange orange glow,never saw a color like that was nither orange or amber but that is as close a discription i can come up with. it darted left right (WEST THEN EAST) so fast i could hardly keep an eye on it ziped back north again and seemed to go down behind the trees about 500 yards behind the house, because i could see the trees from the ground up siloweted by the light behind it. stayed there about 45 seconds then came up or back to the south twords me,i felt like it was so close i could reach out and touch it but it was at least 100 feet away. it sat there a fiew seconds then just vanished , i never saw any movement it just wasnt there any more. my 2 teen agers 16 and 14 saw it to, scared them so bad thay ran back in the house wouldnt stay out there and watch it with me. the thing looked solid, had to be to move like that, a light would leave trails,but it also seemed to be a huge light. there was no sound at all, iwas on the phone with a deputy sheriff, a friend, at the time i saw this thing he lives about 8 miles from me and ran outside to look but never saw a thing. ((name deleted)) ps the kids said i was outside 30 minutes,it seemed like one minute to me, thats odd. if you or any one can tell me what we saw please contact sure open for sugestions! (cant spell by the way)
