White disappearing ball of fire reappeared and then turned black.

Orange/yellow light, at first I thought it was a star, then maybe an airplane, but it appeared as though it was not moving.

It then started to look like it was getting smaller, so I assumed it was moving away from me, and then it disappeared.

Then, I passed by some trees and saw it again; this time, it looked like a white ball that was on fire; the fire was at the bottom of the object. I thought it might be a lantern-style firecracker, but it was too high to be any kind of firecracker. It disappeared again, and when it reappeared, it was black; then, it seemed to be near the horizon and fell.

After I witnessed this, I called my sister to tell her about it and my phone made a static sound it had never made before, then all went quiet, then my call was dropped.

When I was trying to call her back, I was going to turn off my phone, and instead just the screen turned off and then came back on and my YouTube app started up without being touched.
