Bright Light "fireball" over head in West Sky September 21st Southern Ontario Canada sighting lasted aprox 1/2 hour

Aprox 9:00pm on Sept 21st stepped out on balcony to have a smoke. I was star gazing and happend to notice what a clear night it was. Something caught my eye in the west sky above the tree line- at first I thought it was Mars it was very bright and had an orage glow to it, but soon realized that was not the case-- i thought this light ball was a huge star, or plane with headlights on but when it stayed stationary for a while i realized that was not what I was looking at. I called my son to come see and just to verify that my eyes were not playing tricks on me. We stood and watched this thing for aprox 1/2 hour, it seemed to dance a little side to side up and down , it also seemed to get brighter and dim as well as changed colors then it did a strange thing it seemed like it had a huge High beam of light for a few seconds then dimmed again. then we noticed it shooting smaller pieces up from it - if i had to describe it - it was almost like a sparkler but only shooting from the top aproxamatly 4 or 5 "sparks" came off . I put my kids to bed at aprox 9:30- i came back upstairs to balcony aprox 9:45 only to see it "shut off" it never zoomed away or took off it just seemed to turn "OFF" this is not the first encounter I have had I have seen other "things like this in the past" but it has been a few years and nothing as amazing as this-- I actually had a panic feeling to myself yet I HAD TO SEE - not sure if anyone has and anything like this but I felt I had to tell someone.. I can't give you an exact size i could only compare sige by extending my arm full length and then the size of my pinky fingernail was the size and the sparks shot up about 1/4 inch. Unfortunatly i was not able to take pictures there was no film in my 35 and my digital decided to no longer function.
