Slow Moving Fireball ?????

My daughter saw the object 1st. We all looked up into the Western sky. It was at about a 45 degree angle from us. The distance was hard to judge. It was night time and there was low cloud cover as well. The object seemed stationary and appeared to be burning Orange / Reddish in color. It was below the cloud ceiling. It began to move slowly across the sky from West to South East. It moved in a slow jerking motion at first, It began to burn less bright as it flew. It traveled like this for about a 4 minutes. It didn't appear to travel very far,. Then it went out. The object than traveled the remainder of the skyline at a rapid pass. Even though it was dark you could still see a dark egg shaped object flying under the cloud ceiling headed in a southeast direction. The entire time there was no apparent sound from the object. The whole event took 4 - 6 minutes. After retuning home I looked up this sighting on your webpage. It is very similar.
