Orange/Bright White Seeming Metallic Ball(40 ft diameter) Seen Descending Near South Point, Hawaii

I stepped outside the house a little before 2 am to relieve myself. At the same time, I looked into the sky to observe the 5 planets which could be seen in this 30 day period.

Next to Jupiter, I saw an orange/bright white sphere, about twice as large as Jupiter. I could detect that the ball was moving, descending steeply on a curve from west to east and initially coming from the north toward South Point. As it came in my direction, it went behind a large tree and I called to my friend to look out the window.

When the sphere came from behind the tree, it had leveled off and was moving evenly on a bee-line. Steam was coming off the seeming metallic round vehicle. It made no sound other than the steam. It was about 500 feet high and a quarter-mile away. It had a bright light off the front left and another off the back right.

I asked my friend if they had seen what I had seen and "yes" was the answer.
