fireball hovering hovering over east dundee

i was sitting on the font porch when i had a feeling to look up and as i did i saw behind some tree branches a bright orange light come vertically down, stop mid air, and started heading northeast in like a straight path, and i could see it was egg shaped it appeared to be on fire, with a white light in the middle. shocked i called for my father in law to come run outside, i told him to look up and he was in awe and called the rest of the family out all 6 family members saw it. by the time it got to the clouds the fire seemed to just burn out, but you could see the white light still heading northeast. by then we lost sight of it.
