A fireball looking UFO

It was approximately 10:40pm, 17th Saturday, June 2017. I was in the garden with my mother and she pointed out a strange object in the sky. I didn’t notice it at first, because I was facing my back towards it. When I looked up I saw what looked like a fireball flying in the sky. It looked like it was quite far away, I don’t know how far up or how big it was. It looked like an orange-ish and red circle with flames coming from the top of it. It flew quite quickly, at first but then it slowed down, the flame also seemed to slowly be dying down, and after it slowly got smaller, it just disappeared, the last bit of flame went out really quick compared to before, it also seemed way too quick for something that was burning to be put out, but I don’t know much about fire so I might be wrong. It was silent and didn't leave any trace. It was only there for a short period of time before it disappeared. I have recorded a few seconds of it, you can’t see a lot and I didn’t record it going out or it changing speed. It also looks like the fireball kind of glows up or gets bigger at one point in the video but that’s just my camera adjusting to the light/me zooming it, it didn’t do that in reality.
