Two witness one amber fireball track south over the Quad Cities

We saw one amber/orange ufo as we were looking out our west-facing window. It was low in the sky and moving north to south. No sound came from it.

Our first thought was that it was an airplane on fire. (There is a mid-size airport in Moline--to our southwest--so we thought that perhaps it was going to make an emergency landing.)

As it tracked south, we moved to our south-facing window.

It eventually moved into the southern horizon and we lost it in our neighbors' tree line.
