Duration:5 minutes?
Glowing fireball object traveling in Cleveland sky NW towards the Lake?

My husband and I were leaving a party and walking to our car. As we walked down the sidewalk, I looked up and saw an orange orb/fireball thing heading across the sky. I kept saying to my husband, "What is that? What is that?" But he (who is usually my debunker) had no response. He kept saying it had no propulsion. (I had to ask him what that meant.)I slowly took out my iPhone and just snapped. The fireball object traveled slowly and steady NW, (maybe towards Lake Erie?). We watched it until it was out of sight. I will email two photos. One is the fireball object, and the second is what it looked like after it traveled further away and was almost out of sight. I’m not sure how high up it was, but it was low enough to catch our eye. We were near the airport, but in this area, we are used to the landing patterns of the airplanes and this was definitely not an airplane. Also, the airplanes that evening were landing to the SW.

I would love it if someone looked at this and could explain what we saw. So, if it’s not a UFO, oh well, but we are still scratching our heads!
