Glowing and moved up but not side to side - thought it may be a hot air balloon but didn’t look like one and was too high and night time

Saw circular object glowing a few thousand feet above our house. Grabbed my telephoto lense and shot the attached picture. Object continued to rise. To the naked eye I thought it may be a hot air balloon, but it was extremely high and it was getting dark out. Once I took the picture, I was able to zoom in and see that it didn’t resemble a hot air balloon. After about 20 minutes it was too high to see.
