Large glowing red object moving slowly

We saw the strangest thing in the skies tonight around 9:10 p.m. It was very large, roughly spherical, "but vertically so" and glowing red. It was heading northwest in a leisurely manner. From our perspective, it seemed to have an uneven rate of acceleration. We watched it for about a minute and half before it looked as if it were getting smaller (or more distant) and then it disappeared from sight.

We had never seen anything like it before and wondered it was a meteorite—although it didn’t seem like it was falling.
