"Flaming" orange orb-like object rising into sky above Sanderling, NC.

An orange, reddish object (that from afar appeared to be flaming), came from behind houses and rose westward up into the sky. It was completely noiseless and kept rising up above our house. Upon returning outside with more people a mere 2 minutes later, the object was gone, and we searched the skies around our whole house. It seemed to disappear upon reaching the sky above our house. The exact location of this was Sanderling, North Carolina. My fellow observers said they believed it to be 1) a drone, or 2) a Chinese lantern.
