Sphere/fireball seen during fireworks

Where watching firework show(s) from the football field of West Elementary School in Butte, Montana.

At about 10:20 pm I walked home to get some fireworks I have forgotten, as I was walking down the alley to my house, I noticed I very bright red/orange sphere/ball of light almost due-south of me,

at first I thought it was some-type of flare, (the color was much like a road-flare) but after a few seconds I noticed it wasn’t dropping, I lost sight of it behind some trees and the roof-line of the houses.

At the same time as this was happening, my wife, took 2 pictures that show something strange moving across the frame.
