Fireball in sky near O'Hare Airport

I was out in my backyard when I saw a bright red-orange fireball shaped object through my tree. It was traveling east to west very high in the sky. Thought it was a plane at first but no other lights and as stated, was very high in the sky. As it traveled it turned shades of red to orange and pulsed. Eventually totally vanished from sight like a light turned off. Near O'Hare airport.
