3 ft orb downtown orlando

About 20 minutes prior to dusk, I was sitting in my front yard in downtown Orlando facing West (the sun had already set below the tree line). Above my head I saw an orb about 100yds in the sky, perhaps 3ft in diameter. I thought it was a childs balloon drifting, but quickly noticed it was not floating but taking a direct SE to NW course over my home at a constant rate of speed (maybe 20 mph). No sound. Dark, maybe muddy bronze in color with aura (no color) around it more like a magnetic field .
