I was unable to sleep so I looked out my window and I saw an orange fireball moving slowly from the south east

I was tossing and turning unable to sleep, it was around 2:30am and I looked out my window which is next to my bed to look at the stars which I usually do but this time it was different. I was a star in the distance and I did a double take because of the color of it and the fact that it was moving closer. I sat up in bed completely astonished and a little curious. It was high in the sky but I could see it was like an orange fireball and it was kind of hazy looking. It was moving silently and too slowly to be a helicopter or plane. It was coming from the south east. I looked at it until I couldn't see it anymore after it went over my roof. The whole thing lasted around 2 minutes.
