a large glowing reddish orange circle/sphere

at about 1030pm i went out of my cabin to urinate, i happened to look up into the trees when I saw a red circle about 20ish feet up in the trees 1-200 feet from me about the size of a large truck tire from my vantage point. it was as bright as the brightest super moon and appeared to have a smooth surface although it looked solid red on closer inspection it had a bit of orange color on the peripheries id call it fiery (but it was not on fire) it made no discernable sound there was no smell and no loss of time, it appeared to be still After a few minutes I shined a light at it and got no response so I went into my cabin to see it at another angle I turned out all of the lights and could still see it through the window, I turned the lights back on and went in and out several more times to observe. The last time I went back outside, I could see a bright white light slowly rise up through the trees (that light was as bright as the brightest star I have ever seen)
weather was clear with a slight breeze and no clouds at the beginning of the encounter an airplane could be heard and seen off in the distance
the airspace over my cabin is a known military flight path
