Orange/red ball heading from south to north over central Alabama

Noticed what appeared to be a paper lantern on the horizon south of Gardendale, AL. It had a bright center with a red/orange glow. The object moved across the sky south to north, silently at about the same speed as the ISS. It began to fade then went dark about 40° above the north east horizon.
