Orange/red glowing fireball in southwest sky over Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, IL

I was walking my dog in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago and looked up in the southwest sky to see what appeared to be a fire in the sky! At first glance I thought it was an aircraft on fire and I was alarmed. I followed the orange/red glowing fireball for about 30 seconds as it moved very slowly. It did not make a sound. I lost sight of it as it disappeared behind trees.
