Red fireball light orb seen high up in neighbors yard in Maplewood of St. Louis County.

Red fireball type light orb in neighbors backyard. It was up as high as their 3rd story/pitched attic near the corner of Greenwood and St. Elmo. It fell or moved downward. Approximately 1 foot or smaller diameter. I was sitting in our yard with my husband around 10:30 p.m. facing towards their yard. Unfortunately he was facing the other direction. I walked over to the edge of our yard afterwards and checked out their yard for a bit. No one was out there, no bon fire, nothing. Was excited I got to see it. Unsure where it went.

Previously at around the age of 10 or so (1992) witnessed a white glowing orb 1 foot in diameter. It "pulled up" to my passenger side window as we were driving down the highway and it followed along side us for a few moments. This was on highway 44 near where the old gas reservoirs used to be near Maplewood and Shrewsberry. My mother was driving and also witnessed it.
