Low flying orange red sphere seen between Cana Island and Baileys Harbor in Wisconsin

About 9:15 CST, July 14, 2015, a single fireball was spotted in the eastern sky over Lake Michigan. It was moving horizontally from North to South and spotted between Cana Island and Baileys Harbor, WI.

Object was first glimpsed while flying past a window that is approximately 11'-6" high off the finished floor.

The object appeared to be an orange/red sphere, about the size of a risen full moon, and appeared to be flying just above the tree tops.

After spotting it in the window, I ran out onto the deck and watched it fly over head and then behind the trees to the south, headed in the direction of Baileys Harbor. As it moved south, I could still see its glow but could no longer see the sphere.

It was probably visible to me between 30 seconds to a minute. Long enough for me to get out of the door and onto the deck. It seemed to be moving quickly.

No sound was noticeable and there was no light trail behind the sphere or no aura around the sphere, that I could discern. Just an orange red ball flying horizontally and low through the night sky. It was a very interesting sight and something I've never seen before.

At this time, I have not been able to find any reference to this fireball sighting by anyone else in the area.
