Orange/Yellow fireball or flame inside round shape spotted in East Nashville traveling in steady pace.

On Saturday, April 30, 2011, at approximately 9:00 PM, while taking a break during band rehearsals in East Nashville, we were outside and happened to look up to the sky. We saw what first looked like a hot air or weather balloon. It appeared to be round in shape and almost looked like it was either a fireball or a flame inside the shape. It was of a orange/yellow color and appeared to be traveling Southwest to Northeast. It was neither slow nor fast, but seemed to travel in a steady pace.
