Large Orange light or fire ball over Orlando traveling E to W without falling and with no tail, then disappeared.

There was a large Orange fire ball over South Orlando that was not an airplane nor a helicopter and couldn't have been a flare because there was never a tail and it was traveling from East to West without falling for quite some distance.

At one point there were very large sparks coming off one side that appeared to go up and out in an arc for the most part. Many of us were on the porch of a restaurant in Celebration FL and we all witnessed it. It didn't act or appear as falling space debris would either.

After traveling for a couple of miles straight from East to West is when it appeared to stop in mid air and the sparks came out. It sat there for some time after that before it finally just disappeared in that same spot...without falling. It also changed color to a greenish then white color then back to the orange glow. It was too far from us to tell if there was sound or what shape it may have been. There were other aircraft in the vicinity and this loo! ked completely different than those.

What was that?
