Fireball sighting in Seattle

I had stepped outside on my deck to capture pictures of the stars and the full moon. Too the south was an odd light, that appeared to be closing in on the earth like a meteor or an object attempting to land. The difference being, it was very bright orange and did not stay on one course.

I captured multiple pictures. Upon review, the fireball moved down to the lower right of the sky, then to the lower left of the sky to the point that it passed behind a tree, where I could no longer see it.
