small fire ball moving at very slow speed

On 10/28/2011 at 10.15 pm my wife and I were walking our dogs and we heard a low flying jet move east to west at high speed. This caused us to gaze up towards the sky Within 5 seconds we saw what seemed like a fireball moving in the same direction.

We were looking at the object which seemed to be approximately 50 yards to our left and less than 1000 feet elevation. The object was moving very slow and inconsistent in the direction. It remained in our sight for about 25 seconds and then got dimmer and higher and then quickly disappeared

It was not a helicopter and not a normal flying aircraft because it moved so slow. I thought I might be a parachute flare.
