Glowing Fire Colored Orb in the Sky

At 8:45PM, In Muncie, Indiana, at approximately 180ft Northwest of the intersection of Reserve and Centennial Avenue, I saw a single fire colored circular orb of light in the sky travel Northeast for a distance of about 100ft then it traveled backward stopping for a moment close to its original Northwest position.It made a spiral jerking motion as though it were wavering before it continued forward fluidly again in the opposite direction for a distance of about 275 Ft and simply vanished like it was never there.It did not travel into the distance becoming dimmer, it literally vanished as if the light had been extinguished without any trace. I was accompanied in this sighting by a random neighbor who happened to be driving and actually pulled over in his vehicle to park and observe this phenomenon.
