Large fusia colored ball descending slowly to the ground. color changed to orange/red and trail of smoke was visible

I was standing on my front porch and I saw a large ball in the sky which was descending down toward the ground very slowly. It was fusia in color, but as it got closer to the ground, the color changed to orange/red, the edges of the ball became irregular and a trail of smoke was visible directly above it.
