Fiery Orange Ball Slowly Moving over our house at Lake Murray, SC

My husband had gone outside to feed the dog and heard a “rumble” and looked up. Above our house moving very slowly was an extremely large (as big as our house), fiery orange, round ball. The night sky was clear. It appeared close to us (500 feet or less). The rumble was only heard for approximately 2-3 seconds. I was on the other side of the house when he started shouting, “Look up, look up!!” We watched it for 2-3 minutes as it headed northwest. It had no tail. It was definitely not an airplane.
