A light/fireball passing overhead in Saint Paul, MN

I was heading to my car when I glanced up at the sky and saw an orange light/fireball. I first dismissed it as an airplane since I live with a few miles of an international airport but it kept flying closer and closer. Eventually, after a minute or two, it headed right over my head and was heading from the northwest to the southeast. As it was passing over my head, there was no noise coming from the light/fireball and after a few minutes, the fireball passed out of sight.
