Approx 200 feet in the air about 50 feet in diameter maybe larger. Looked like swirling lava - but stationary

My mother and brother were on Cltde Morris boulevard in Daytona beach Florida and I A(age 8) got everyones attention. we gazed at it for several minutes and dismissed it too easily. It happened but for some reason it was not compellin enough at the time to converse about it. The size was (adjust for age) about 100 feet away and looked to be about 200 feet in the air. It was orange and looked just like a stationary fireball - like a close sun almost. It just hoovered there not making a sound.
