Large Orange ball apeared in sky above houses and trees, then slowly fell below tree line, mimicking a falling star

It was a mostly clear night with very little clouds or fog. While locking my front door as I left my house, I quickly glanced up in the sky northward. Above the trees and houses about 4-6 blocks north of my house, an orange ball of light appeared and then fell slowly, almost like a shooting star but without the tail. The ball of light was much larger than any stars in the sky, had an amber color, and made no sound. I realized the orange glowing ball wasn’t a shooting star, or plane, because the object fell below the tree lines and was much larger and brighter than any stars I have experienced previously. I called my friend, and told her I saw something strange without giving her any details. She told me she saw an orange ball of light too (She was 3-4 miles west) and explained exactly what I saw but from another angle.
