Fireball in the night sky

Driving home from a Christmas Eve dinner, we were heading east when I saw what looked like an orange ball in the sky. Not very high above the tree line. (I joking said, look its Santa!) It was moving from the north to the south. I pointed it out to my husband and he also acknowledged this curious "ball of fire". As I watched it cross almost over head, it actually looked like a ball of fire with a halo affect partly around the front of it. As it passed to my right I closely watched it and it began the dim then brighten back up every few seconds. This lasted only about 20 seconds then it "blinked" out and it was gone. This was at around 11:35 PM tonight. It's dark out, it might have disappeared from sight because of trees but it didn't look that way to me.
