a orange fire ball moved acrossed the night sky in N.E. Ohio

Object was a orange in color moving slowly to the south southeast and between 500 and 1000 feet . Size was small and looked to be like a large beach ball . It had a pulsing to it. I had time to have the wife come out and see it then go back in for the camera and got three shots on it before it went out of my sight. Estimated speed was maybe around 20 MPH or less. IT made no sound as it passed over .
