Orange fireball in the evening sky

I was headed home from visiting a relative. The sun was down but it was still light out. The stars were very visible. I saw what looked like a burning piece of paper floating off to the left of the direction I was heading. What I saw was bright orange, almost oval shaped. I pulled over so I could focus on it better. It moved slowly heading east. From my perspective it seemed to be the size of a baseball compared to a typical star. This object disappeared quite quickly, though I did witness its movement for about a minute. I managed to get video of it only briefly, however the camera is a cell phone. Needless to say the quality is poor.
