Cylindrical fireball type object slowly moving Northwest from Caswell County NC toward Danville, Virginia

On Tuesday, 5/14/13 at 9:00 pm I was on a night time whitetail deer hunt in Caswell County, NC. While in a tree stand about 22' in the air I noticed a cylindrical shaped light moving slowly and seemingly tumbling. I was looking at this object moving North westerly and put my rifle scope up to see it more closely.

As I looked through the scope, set on 9x magnification, I could see it seemed to be on fire! The front end looked to be pointing in the same general direction and the rest of the entire object looked like a yellow/orange sparkler. The object moved at a steady rate but in an erratic way, like the tail end was dancing and sliding around while the "nose end" steadily pointed in a Northwest direction.

I watched the object move for almost 10 minutes until I could no longer see it through the tree line.

I stayed out for another 2 hours but did not see anything out of the ordinary. This object seemed to be coming from the direction of the airport in Greensboro, NC, and moving north/northwest at a slow rate of speed. No noise, because as other airplanes were flying over I could hear them. There were numerous other airplanes flying in the air.

I would be very interested to know if anyone else has claimed to see this or something like it in the area. I go out at least 1 night a week hunting and this is the 4th time seeing something I could not explain since 2010....in the same general area. Nothing I have ever seen looked like this object.
