something falling from the sky...what could it be

So Saturday, we are sitting in the porch smoking a cigarette.. And all of a sudden I look up into the sky and see this red ball flying super fast. I stared yelling, "What is that, what is that. It seemed as if someone threw a softball in the air ans it caught on fire.

We go out the porch to see. Thinking maybe a shooting star.

I opened up the camera in my phone to take a picture of it. Thinking how amazing i was able to capture a shooting star. It had been coming in very fast but then it just stops in mid air.

Then started to move extremely slow. Till it disappeared. So we figure it aint a plane for sure must be a shooting star. But in doubt we make our wishes anyways.

We go back in ans later explaining to my son and husband. We decide to zoom in on the picture. We were shocked and amazed. And more amazing that I caught a pic of it. But when we put it close it wasnt a star. If not something scary but what I dont know. It was a huge ball of what seems to be fire. So right then we knew it was impossible to be a shooting star. What could this be? U be the judge but make it closer. I didn't even know how to explain it. Maybe a meteor or a little asteroid.
