Bright red "fireball" appeared to roll across the sky and disappeared over horizon

Driving on Hampshire Dr and spotted what at first I thought was an airborne firework. Upon closer observation object was not descending or fading but appeared to "roll" across the sky. Object remained brightly lit and continued in a southeast trajectory until leaving field of view over the horizon. Sky was clear, near sunset, and object had intense red glow. Object made no noise and left no trail in the sky.
