Duration:5 minutes
Floating orange fire moving slowing, then quickly in a SE direction.

Observed what appeared to be an orange fireball in the sky. It was hovering and moving slowly in a SE direction. It seemed to be smooth on the underside and licking flames towards the sky, like a fire. When I noticed it, it was large and appeared to be relatively close to my house (within a mile). After about thirty seconds, it appeared to be moving away more quickly and either fading or getting further away rapidly. It soon disappeared behind the trees and out of my view traveling in an SE direction.
