Red, orange fiery, glowing sphere witnessed by five people.

My family and I were sitting around on our porch one clear, summer night when my father noticed the object first. It was a round fiery glowing sphere with red, orange light that seemed to undulate as a fire would but within this circular object. We noticed it slowly moving seemingly toward us in an angled, upward direction. There wasn't any audible sound at all. We all went out on our lawn, and, as we watched it was right over us at this point. Not sure how high it was, but the size was approximately the same as my thumb nail at arms length. At this point it continued to slowly ascend upwards no longer at an angle. We watched it became smaller and smaller until it was no longer in sight.
