Bright orange fireball

We were sitting on the patio about 9:30 pm and facing the south , toward the mountains, when all of a sudden there was an orange fireball which seemed to have dropped out of nowhere. It dropped so far and then proceeded to the east at a very slow speed. we were maybe about 1/2 mile away from it and it looked very low, there is no way of knowing how low it was as we watched it until it disappeared behind some trees. To my best estimation, it might have been several hundred feet up. It was bright orange, and there was no noise. when I held my thumb out against it... some of the orange showed around my thumb. so I am not sure how big it really was.
