Slow moving, low flying fireball. Moved erratically and faded away.

Looked out the window and noticed a bright orange fireball quite low in the sky, moving slowly. I went outside to see it more clearly. It did not move like a plane and there was no noise. The sky was overcast with no stars visible. I watched it flying around in an erratic path towards me and then away. It started to dim as it flew away from me. It seemed to be disappearing, shrinking and dimming. This was not because it was too far away to see, since it seemed to be standing still above a neighboring house 4 houses up the hill. I watched it for about 5 minutes and then it just faded away. I was looking NE when I saw it and it ended up east of my house.
