Firey orange object over Duluth, Minnesota

At 12:47 AM (Central Time) I noticed a bright firey orange colored ball shaped object in the sky over Duluth. It appeared to be some distance away from me, possibly over the Oneota Cemetery area. I do not know how long the object was there for, but I observed it for five minutes until it just blinked out at 12:52 AM.

The object was moving very slowly. It appeared to be moving North and possibly slightly West. I used two pine trees and the roof of a house as guides to determine that the object was indeed moving very slowly and to the North.

The object looked like a fireball, but clearly was not a meteor, flare, or an airplane. The object made no noise that I could hear. I didn't notice any other aircraft in the area.
