Duration:3 minutes
Slow moving slow pulsating fireball that stopped in sky then dropped sparks and starting falling with sparks

Observed red fire ball travelling from NW to SE From the Pacific Ocean. I thought this was an airplane since the red orb was pulsing to a bright red color which made it appear twice as big. The speed of this object was traveling slowly and the pulse was about every 1.5 seconds. I had time to call my daughter outside to see this red orb.

When the Orb stopped in the sky at about 1800 feet I called my wife to come see the object. My wife came out about 30 seconds later and the orb was still there. My wife saw the orb pulsing in the same spot for 10-15 seconds . The orb then started to drop what looked like hot embers or sparks. With sparks falling the orb started falling and fading slowly until we could not see it anymore. The event has left me a bit confused. Can someone tell me what this was.

Thanks
