Fireball in Merrillville IN

Just left my house by car and immediatly noticed something strange in the sky. Stopped the car and observed the object for about 1 or 2 minutes. It looked like a big ball of fire just hovering there. There seemed to be some small erratic movement and no sound. I quickly went back to the house and got my wife to come look.

When we looked back up the object appeared to be moving SW at a very high speed and disappeared.
