I witnessed and orange/red fireball over Chicago

Hello, Last night about 10:00 pm, I witnessed and orange/red fireball, very high in the atmosphere traveling from east to west in the northern sky over Chicago. The object came into view to my right (East) and traveled the entire span of the sky at a high rate of speed fading to my left (West). I have seen many Meteors enter the atmosphere and this was entirely different. It glowed red/orange and appeared to be burning.
