Orange Red Fireball traveling west then north.

Monday 7/29/2013 about 9:14 PM Central Standard Time. My wife and I where outside talking . I was facing her and she was watching the night sky when she said "What is that". I turned in enough time to see what appeared to be a fireball about the size of a dime. It was very overcast and dark out. No stars in the sky, the moon was not even present. It was as bright as a lite match. It was pulsing and color was changing from fire orange to bright red. It appeared in the south east portion of the night sky and was heading west. It seemed to be moving 5 times the speed as a normal plane you would see in the sky and lasted about 30 to 40 seconds. It suddenly stopped and in the blink of an eye changed directions to travel north. Its speed then increased to 2 times the speed it was traveling before. It was moving so quickly that it was gone before I could blink.
