red fireball/orb in night over Lakewood JBLM 9/13/16

Saw a fireball/orb type in the sky. It was dark. Always check on the stars right before I go to bed. It was flying over Lakewood, JBLM. Pretty slow, but not too slow. Then it made a right angle turn (a "v" shape) and flew direction opposite, turned almost white then fizzled out. The atmosphere smelled like burning chemicals. It was bizarre. Not a plane (used to those in the flight path at JBLM), not a copter
