Glowing Orange orb with small red orbs or embers falling out of it

We were standing on the porch, I saw a large, bright orange orb shaped object. It came closer slowly, then it hovered for a minute or so. Then I noticed red, glowing small objects that appeeared to be falling out of or from the orange orb. I saw 8 of these red things falling off or out of the orange orb.
