Glowing object in the sky with a slightly erratic flight pattern moving from SW to SE

I left my daughter’s house and saw a glowing, round object in the sky. It didn’t have a defined shape. It was moving from SW to SE in a slightly erratic flight pattern. I knew it wasn’t a plane because it didn’t have any of the blinking lights that planes have and it didn’t have a contrail. I took a photo and then a video, both with my iPhone. I phoned my husband, we live next door, and asked him to come out quickly to look at this object. He agreed that it didn’t appear to be a plane. The object went out of view after a couple minutes due to tree and building obstructions. If you look carefully at the video, you can see that sometimes it moves slightly up and down and then straight. I didn’t look carefully at the still photo until the following day, October 31st. When I enlarged it as much as I could, I was a bit shocked by what I saw. The photo is why I am contacting you. The object has an irregular shape and seems to be emitting its own light causing a glow. There are three “lines “coming down from the shape. It’s just really strange. I showed this to several people and we all agree that it’s certainly not a plane. I would love to know what you think it could be. It appears you would like latitude and longitude. I looked it up for Durango Colorado. Latitude is 37.270500 and longitude is -107.878700
