Ball of light caught on video

I went out to my back yard to take out the trash around 9;30 PM MST ON December 23, 2021.. It appeared from the west. It was a ball of fiery light that changed colors from red to dark red. I puled out my phone as at moved from north to west in the Athmar park neighborhood in Denver. When I was able to get my phone out and record it went from a big ball of light heading north to a spec of flashing light heading west. I ran into the house to tell my wife and kids. They followed me to the back yard where I showed them the video I shot and pointed to where i saw it. Then the ball of light appeared again moving north and continued heading north moving very slow. It looked as if the moon had fell out of the sky and turned crimson red. I began recording. My kids and wife are screaming. I continue to record as we run thru our back door thru the house to the front door. The ball of light flew over our home in the back so we ran thru the house to the front yard. I am still recording as the ball moves north east. Then it shimmered back and forth rapidly and disappeared. Not only do I have it on my phone, but when I checked my security cameras it also caught it, infra red. When I was recording running thru my home, my security camera captured me recording it on my cell phone. I downloaded a free software app to blow the footage up. The footage from my infra red security shows a ball of light with something rotating on the inside of the light . Clear as day. I contacted Mufon and was assigned a case manager who never called me. He never responded to my phone calls. I contacted Mufon within 24 hours and filed a report.. I can't stress enough how close this thing was. My footage is not grainy I. have three videos of this object. I was in the Airforce and I carried a security clearance. I know what I saw. I haven't released the footage to any platform. It's only been seen by two other people that live outside my home. We are a family of five and we all saw it . Me my wife and my three children.
