Orange burning light over Joliet, Il

At 11 p.m. on 10-04-2015, out of the northeast from Joliet, IL, from approximately the Lockport area, a bright orange burning ball of light was heading southwest towards the Morris, IL, direction. It was about 1k off the ground and was on a steady path directly over my house, as it passed being as bright as it was had no blinking lights to indicate an airplane and I could see no shape what so ever, just a burning orange light with an almost flame like flicker behind it.

As it passed there was no trail but made a steady very low "shhhhh" like sound. As it went over there was an odd glow that faded as it continued on then it disappeared.

I called the local police to see if there were any reports, but they didnt know anything about it. And no, I'm not crazy.
