slow moving orange fireball picked up on video

I was changing then bindings of my snowboard in the livingroom of my residence. Something out the window caught my eye. Thinking it was an aircraft from Toronto Pearson Airport I resumed working on the board. Upon taking a second glimse, I realized that it was pretty strange, I grabbed my digital video camera and taped the object by hanging dangerously outside my second story window. I managed to get a couple minutes of footage. What I saw seemed to be a slow moving fireball. There were no common green, red, blue or clear aircraft navigation lights. This was a fire orange colour that seemed constant. I was wondering if maybe it was an aircraft in trouble.No reports yet of any. This object moved form the Western sky to the south. I ran outside to get more footage. Any way I called police asking if there were any reports of aircraft trouble but they could not help. Oh well. Anyways, I thought I would see if there was any way iIcould report this strang incident. Pretty amazing! This does not seem to different to your report on the main page with the orange glow that was also picked up on video. Thanks. ((initials deleted))
