White/silver orb over O'Fallon on 7/4/10

My husband and I were at TR Hughes Ballpark, off I-70 on 7/4/2010, at dusk, preparing to watch the fireworks display, when we saw what appeared to be a white/silver sphere shaped object in the sky, moving from the south to the north. It traveled in a linear fashion and was moving at a fairly rapid speed. Initially we thought it was either a balloon or some sort of firework, but the object was too consistent in speed and moved in a perfectly straight line. It flew fairly low in the sky as well. We continued to watch it move north, at which time it appeared to change color, to a darker grey/silver color. We continued to watch it until it was no longer in our view.

My husband and I are both very objecive, skeptical people and were hesitant to report our sighting, in lieu of the holiday fireworks.
