Fireball sighting

I was having a get together in my backyard with about 12 of my friends. We were just outside listening to music and having a good time, when suddenly one of my friends noticed something really odd floating in the sky. It appeared to be very low in the sky and was moving very slowly in the west direction. None of us could really tell what it was, but we had all described it as a "fireball," much like everyone else has been. It was an orange-red colour and looked to be on fire.

I ran inside to get my parents to come out and look, but by the time they came outside the fireball was so far into the sky it simply looked like a star. About 10 seconds later, it had completely disappeared.

I had told my uncle about the sighting about a week ago, and he was very familiar with the description. He too had seen one many years ago.
